Does anyone know how to access Gaia DR2 or EDR3 time series data for an individual star via a GUI interface?
Internet searches have so far not helped me.
VStar supports a pluging (described here https://www.aavso.org/sites/default/files/vstar-plugins/vstar-plugins-d…) that will display the light curve photometry for the subset Gaia sources that Gaia classifies as variable and supplies epoch photometry. From my reading of the summary of EDR3 I do not believe any addtional data have been release over DR2.
I've got the plugin and will have a good look.
So far, trying to add data to a VStar light curve from Gaia DR2 (via the plugin) yields the response (for a few different variables) "No observations for the specified period".
Did you verify that you are looking in the Gaia archive for DR2, not DR3? Is the phot_variable_flag set to "VARIABLE"?
If so, please share the Gaia IDs you are searching.
since the release of DR3 photometry in June, the individual photometry measurements are available on https://gaia.ari.uni-heidelberg.de/singlesource.html
This webpage works very well and is very quick in its responses.
