Announcing: Evangeline!

[Orig: April 10, 2018]

Hi everyone,

"Evangeline" is now the name for the second dip in March 2018!! It is now labeled on the latest light curve (see below). A bit more on the name:

Evangeline is the main character in the epic poem 'Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie' by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Evangeline gets separated from her love Gabriel during the expulsion (by the English) of the Acadians from Nova Scotia. The Acadians settle in Louisiana and the poem describes her search for Gabriel. In 1999 Baton Rouge locals, Paul Taranto and Jamie Wax adapted the poem into Evangeline: The Musical.

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!
