2018 March: dip update 7/n

[Orig: March 26, 2018]

Hi everyone,

Today we have some very big news - data taken at TFN last night show the flux is down 5%. This drop has now been confirmed by AAVSO observer John Hall. Looks like we beat the record set just last week on the deepest dip observed since Kepler!

The light curves below come in two flavors: full May2017 to now and a close-up just showing March 2018. The orange points on the close-up graph are from colleagues at the TJO observatory.

PS: These observations are happening because of the wonderful backers of our 2016 Kickstarter project. The Kickstarter campaign has ended, but we are still accepting donations to purchase additional observing time on the LCO 0.4m network. Thanks in advance for your support!
