Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In astronomy, a light curve is a graph of light intensity of a celestial object or region, as a function of time. The light is usually in a particular frequency interval or band. Light curves can be periodic, as in the case of eclipsing binaries, cepheid variables and other periodic variables, or aperiodic, like the light curve of a nova, a cataclysmic variable star, a supernova or a microlensing event.show more
