Abstract
We have initiated a large survey with K2 to observe thousands of RR Lyrae stars along the Ecliptic. The high photometric precision and the 80-90-day continuous coverage will allow us to investigate the light variation of these galactic structure tracer variable stars with an unprecedented detail. The survey will help us to conduct a thorough statistical study of RR Lyrae pulsation dynamics including old and recently discovered dynamical phenomena, like resonances, non-radial modes, period doubling, and the Blazhko effect. We describe the survey, present the first results and discuss the prospects of combining the K2 RR Lyrae survey, Gaia, and LSST in the context of galactic structure studies.
