Upper panel: upper view of Field 6 Trojans (large black dots) superimposed to the SDSS MOC3 Trojans in the L4 swarm (smaller grey dots) projected to the Jupiter’s orbital plane. Earth is in origin. Note that Campaign 6 pointed exactly into the core of the L4 swarm. Lower panel: field-of-view of K2 Campaign 6 superimposed with the apparent trajectories of the 56 Jupiter Trojans discussed in this paper. On each trajectory, the dots show the motion in 5-days long steps.
