Space observatories have provided unprecedented depictions of the many variability behaviors typical of low-mass, young stars. However, those studies have so far largely omitted more massive objects (∼2 M ⊙ to 4–5 M ⊙) and were limited by the absence of simultaneous, multiwavelength information. We present a new study of young star variability in the ∼1–2 Myr old, massive Lagoon Nebula region. Our sample encompasses 278 young, late B to K-type stars, monitored with Kepler/K2.

DISK-RELATED BURSTS AND FADES IN YOUNG STARS
We present first results from a new, multiyear, time domain survey of young stars in the North America Nebula complex using the Palomar Transient Factory. Our survey is providing an unprecedented
Photometric variability of massive young stellar objects
The Vista Variables in the Via Lactea (VVV) survey has allowed for an unprecedented number of multi-epoch observations of the southern Galactic plane. In a recent paper, 13 massive young stellar
Rotation of Low-mass Stars in Upper Scorpius and ρ Ophiuchus with K2
We present an analysis of K2 light curves (LCs) for candidate members of the young Upper Sco (USco) association (~8 Myr) and the neighboring ρ Oph embedded cluster (~1 Myr). We establish ~1300 stars
UV variability and accretion dynamics in the young open cluster NGC 2264
Context. Photometric variability is a distinctive feature of young stellar objects; exploring variability signatures at different wavelengths provides insight into the physical processes at work in
CSI 2264: Characterizing Young Stars in NGC 2264 with Stochastically Varying Light Curves
We provide CoRoT and Spitzer light curves, as well as broad-band multi-wavelength photometry and high resolution, multi- and single-epoch spectroscopy for 17 classical T Tauris in NGC 2264 whose
YSOVAR: MID-INFRARED VARIABILITY IN THE STAR-FORMING REGION LYNDS 1688
The emission from young stellar objects (YSOs) in the mid-infrared (mid-IR) is dominated by the inner rim of their circumstellar disks. We present IR data from the Young Stellar Object VARiability
CSI 2264: CHARACTERIZING ACCRETION-BURST DOMINATED LIGHT CURVES FOR YOUNG STARS IN NGC 2264*
Based on more than four weeks of continuous high cadence photometric monitoring of several hundred members of the young cluster NGC 2264 with two space telescopes, NASA’s Spitzer and the CNES CoRoT
Wide-area photometric and astrometric (Gaia DR2) study of the young cluster NGC 6530
Context. NGC 6530 is a young cluster, with a complex morphology and star-formation history. We present a statistical study of its global properties, using a new, large list of candidate members down
AN OPTICAL SPECTROSCOPIC STUDY OF T TAURI STARS. I. PHOTOSPHERIC PROPERTIES
Estimates of the mass and age of young stars from their location in the H-R diagram are limited by not only the typical observational uncertainties that apply to field stars, but also by large
A multiwavelength study of star formation in the very young open cluster NGC 6530
The distance and formation history of the very young open cluster NGC 6530 were investigated by study- ing a total of 132 probable member stars of this open cluster. It was concluded that the
