light curve

(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).
