(changing intensity of light from a transient)
A light curve is the shape of the graph of the
changing intensity of light (or other electromagnetic radiation)
from a transient
(e.g., supernova, transit, gravitational microlensing).
The curve varies by wavelength or band.
Study of these curve(s) can reveal information about
the event and the object(s).
