Abstract: The KEPLER spacecraft provides accurate (up to 40 ppm of flux for stars near 7 mag) light-curves (LCs), enough to theoretically distinguish the occultation of the exoplanet by its parent star (e.g. the secondary minimum). We have selected KEPLER Objects of Interest KOI-2.01 and KOI-13.01 with the deepest secondary minima; co-added many single phase LCs and modeled them with a simplex algorithm to measure the depths of primary and secondary minima; and calculate the radii of the star and the exoplanet.
