Once you've found a transiting planet candidate you'll want to find out more about its star. What is already known about the star? Is there a known planet around it? What's the mass, size and temperature of the star? These stellar properties are closely related to the properties of the planet, so knowing how to look them up is very important for exoplanet science.
The two videos in this mini-series on resources will show you how to find out what observational data is available for a specific TESS target and how to plot the data and interact with it. They will also cover how to find out more about the host star and any potential planets in the system.
