We have monitored the Neptune‐mass, exoplanet‐hosting M dwarf GJ 581 with the 1 m Swope Telescope at Las Campanas Observatory over two predicted transit epochs. A neutral density filter centered at 550 nm was used during the first epoch, yielding 6.33 hr of continuous light‐curve coverage with an average photometric precision of 1.6 mmag and a cadence of 2.85 minutes. The second epoch was monitored in the B band over 5.85 hr, with an average photometric precision of 1.2 mmag and a 4.28 minute… Expand
