Funny star (APH0000h8u)

    It has 4 days of high "flares" followed by a completely straight line. If it was a person, it would be furious for 4 days and then suddenly go "meh, I don't care anymore" and sleep the rest of the month.

    What is more interesting is that those flares have sort of sawtooth pattern

    Contamination from RR Lyrae or result of bad processing?

    Definitely systematics, the flux variability is too large for it to be physical. The ~6-hour quasi-periodicity is compatible with the interval between spacecraft re-alignments.
