Optional Lab: Exoplanet Transit

The Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network has a program called Agent Exoplanet where you go through real astronomical images from their telescopes, measure the flux from stars, and then identify stars with transiting planets based on a dip in flux. If you would like to earn extra points, or if you're just curious, please go play with their tools and then blog it up!
