NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED)

NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED) is a comprehensive database of multiwavelength data for extragalactic objects, providing a systematic, ongoing fusion of information integrated from hundreds of large sky surveys and hundreds of thousands of research publications. The contents and services span the entire observed spectrum from gamma rays through radio frequencies. As new observations are published, they are cross-identified or statistically associated with previous data and integrated into a unified database to simplify queries and retrieval.

NED source nomenclature

Thousands of acronyms are used in NED. This service provides the list of acronyms and their definitions and further information links.

NED Coordinate Calculator

The NED coordinate calculator provides conversions among different coordinate systems: equatorial, ecliptic, galactic, and supergalactic.

Exoplanet Follow-up Observing Program - K2

The Exoplanet Follow-up Observing Program (ExoFOP) website is designed to optimize resources and facilitate collaboration in follow-up studies of exoplanet candidates. ExoFOP-K2 serves as a repository for community-gathered follow-up data on K2 planet candidates by allowing upload and display of data and derived astrophysical parameters. This dataset or service is made available by the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute at IPAC, which is operated by the California Institute of Technology under contract with the National Aeronautics...

NED Extinction Calculator

The NED extinction calculator returns the foreground Galactic extinction at an input position using the Schlafly & Finkbeiner 2011 (ApJ 737, 103, 2011) recalibration of the Schlegel, Finkbeiner & Davis 1998 (ApJ 500, 525, 1998; SFD98) extinction map. The original SFD98 extinction values are also returned for comparison purposes.

Exoplanet Follow-up Observing Program - TESS

The Exoplanet Follow-up Observing Program (ExoFOP) website is designed to optimize resources and facilitate collaboration in follow-up studies of exoplanet candidates. ExoFOP-TESS serves as a repository for community-gathered follow-up data on TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite) planet candidates by allowing upload and display of data and derived astrophysical parameters. This dataset or service is made available by the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute at IPAC, which is operated by the California Institute of Technology under contract...

NED Gravitational Wave Follow-up (GWF) Service

The NED GWF service facilitates searches for electromagnetic (EM) counterparts to gravitational wave (GW) events. Within minutes after the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO)-Virgo collaboration issues an alert using the Gamma-ray Coordinates Network (GCN) operated by the NASA GSFC (https://gcn.gsfc.nasa.gov/), this NED service responds by cross-matching in 3D the event's HEALPix map with galaxies in the local Universe and the following results are provided: an all-sky image of the probability contours, the location of all...

Exoplanet Follow-up Observing Program - Kepler

The Exoplanet Follow-up Observing Program (ExoFOP) website is designed to optimize resources and facilitate collaboration in follow-up studies of exoplanet candidates. ExoFOP-Kepler serves as a repository for community-gathered follow-up data on Kepler planet candidates by allowing upload and display of data and derived astrophysical parameters. This dataset or service is made available by the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute at IPAC, which is operated by the California Institute of Technology under contract with the National Aeronautics...
