Candidate planet & phase curve parameters:
P = 1.5602 ± 0.0006 days
Arefl = 33.74 ppm
Aellip = 16.02 ppm

RV observation parameters:
K sin(i) = 609 ± 541 m/s
T0,ellip = 2456423.66885 BJD
T0,refl = 2456423.48271 BJD
Notes:
1) T0 is the epoch of superior conjunction (planet passing behind the star). T0,ellip, corresponding to the blue dashed vertical line in the phase curve plot below, is best to use if a significanat ellipsoidal component is present. T0,refl, corresponding to the black dashed vertical line, is best if the ellipsoidal component is not significant.
2) Due to the limitations of the phase curve observables, K sin(i) is estimated rather than K.
