astroENGINE.com hosts the 51st Carnival of Space, a lengthy compilation indeed, from which I’ll draw Ian Musgrave’s interesting post on a possible transit at 83 Leonis as the feature of the week. If you want to find out what it’s like to get your hands dirty juggling the data, trying to sift out signal from noise and working with all the imponderables that go into spotting the signature of a transiting world, have a look. Ian finds a noisy 83 Leonis but one that just might show a transit. A self-described ‘mathematically challenged biologist,’ this is a writer whose work is always worth watching. In this case, what he’s doing reflects the broadening participation of amateurs in exoplanet projects, an idea Greg Laughlin has championed, so it’s no surprise to see that Ian has drawn from Laughlin’s expertise in his current work.
