We compare the luminosity, radius, and temperature evolution of the UV/optical blackbodies for fifteen well-observed tidal disruption events (TDEs), eight of which were discovered by the All-Sky Automated Survey for Supernovae (ASAS-SN). We find that the blackbody radii generally increase prior to peak and slowly decline at late times. The blackbody temperature evolution is generally flat, with a few objects showing small-scale variations. The bolometric UV/optical luminosities generally evolve… Expand
