The Study of the Photometry and Flare Analysis of Kepler Flare Candidate 2MASS J22285440-1325178

The photometry and flare analysis of Kepler flare candidate 2MASS J22285440- 1325178 has been presented. The light curve shows the amplitude distributions for the 2MASS J22285440-1325178. From the light curve, the shorter amplitude represents the short duration of the flares while the larger amplitude show the highest peak of the flares, with amplitude range duration from 7457.70-15482.7700 (e-/sec). The magnitude of the flares varies with times (days) and the light curve, the plot of the light curve demonstrates the frequency of the flares and the range of the magnitude. The amplitude represents the flux peak of each flare, which indicates that flare stars have larger amplitudes and hence larger star spots than normal stars. Our data was obtained from the Milkulski Archive for Space Telescope (MAST). The instrument used for data analysis of 2MASS J22285440-1325178 candidate are python Jupiter notebook software package. In addition, aperture photometric reduction of 2MASS J22285440-1325178 at EPIC 206050032 have been carried out to obtain the light curve. Furthermore, flare amplitude was analyzed as well as the flare rise time and equivalent duration.
