question about a light curve type

  • broder_fisk by broder_fisk

    I've noticed several light curves that start low and then suddenly jump up to high - not like the "cv" example but like this:

    what does that mean?

    It is probably just an artifact or data processing error. The jump is so abrupt that it is very unlikely to be a real change in brightness.
