  • The large relative sizes of circumstellar and circumplanetary disks imply that they might be seen in eclipse in stellar light curves. We estimate that a survey of ~104 young (~10 million year old) post-accretion pre-main-sequence stars monitored for ~10 years should yield at least a few deep eclipses from circumplanetary disks and disks surrounding low-mass companion stars. We present photometric and spectroscopic data for a pre-main-sequence K5 star (1SWASP J140747.93?394542.6 = ASAS J140748… CONTINUE READING
