Heres the figure I showed in the livestream summarizing the (public) observations taken so far. Black dashed isn't a fit but old Kepler data

Is this the center of the complex event at the end of the Kepler run (without the larger dips around it)?

David, have you done a correlation test on these two datasets? They *look* very similar, but it’s so easy to get fooled!

Also, may I use this graphic on my blog? Thanks!

No I haven't tried that but it's clearly a better match than random. Feel free to use the graphic, let me know if need higher res

Also, slight fix is that the date should be JD_UTC not BJD_UTC

That's pretty cool! There is a weaker event on Kepler day 1206 that looks similar to that, too. Of course event 1 looks *nothing* like that!

I’ll mask out the B. :) Thanks!

Event 1 was closer to when the planetary body got impacted by the large asteroid to make the dust cloud. :)

As long as were doing numerology, the day 1206 event was almost halfway between events one and two…

Any metal spectral analyse available? Or any sign of anything else?

Right now we're just trying to organize what we have! But we have high resolution blue spectra, so we should know soon

Yes. Interestingly there is a 'mini-me' version of that dip earlier in the LC, but far shallower...

great work; with new telescopes like james webb; magallanes. Could you see an alien megastructure?

is that symmetry?

So basically it's the same pattern as 759 days ago?

2x 759 days ago yes - 759 days ago no-one observed it so we don't know. Pattern is similar, unclear if identical.

Not exact, but this Kepler event was more symmetric than most

Off-topic but I am loving the Aterix & Obelix font for the captions.
