Multi-day transit

    Please clarify for me, is the transit at about (2.7d, 1.004); or is the graph showing a transit that takes about a day, from day 7-8?
    If that is not a long-period transit day 7-8, then is that a star spot?

    I think it's the one at 2.7d. The star is a variable, so that huge drop from 2.7 to 12 is just part of the star's (apparently periodic) variability.
