    Hi André

    I use it to make it clear that this particular star is just a simulation. You should not waste your time or get too excited about the supposed "transit". In addition I hope it might be useful to search for simulations if you need them (just search for #simulation).

    Cheers, Hans Martin

    Hi André,

    To add to what Hans said. You can find out more about why we have simulated transits in the data here.
