The Visual Survey Group: A Decade of Hunting Exoplanets and Unusual Stellar Events with Space-based Telescopes
This article presents the history of the Visual Survey Group (VSG)—a Professional-Amateur (Pro-Am) collaboration within the field of astronomy working on data from several space missions (Kepler, K2
The GALEX View of “Boyajian’s Star” (KIC 8462852)
The enigmatic star KIC 8462852, informally known as “Boyajian’s Star,” has exhibited unexplained variability from both short timescale (days) dimming events, and years-long fading in the Kepler
Optical SETI Observations of the Anomalous Star KIC 8462852
To explore the hypothesis that KIC 8462852's aperiodic dimming is caused by artificial megastructures in orbit, rather than a natural cause such as cometary fragments in a highly elliptical orbit, we
Secular dimming of KIC 8462852 following its consumption of a planet
The Kepler-field star KIC 8462852, an otherwise apparently ordinary F3 main-sequence star, showed several highly unusual dimming events of variable depth and duration. Adding to the mystery was the
Clumpy dust rings around non-accreting young stars

Back to “Normal” for the Disintegrating Planet Candidate KIC 12557548 b
KIC 12557548 b is the first of a growing class of intriguing disintegrating planet candidates, which lose mass in the form of a metal-rich vapor that condenses into dust particles. Here, we follow up
IRTF/SPEX OBSERVATIONS OF THE UNUSUAL KEPLER LIGHT CURVE SYSTEM KIC 8462852
We have utilized the NASA/IRTF 3 m SpeX instrument’s high-resolution spectral mode to observe and characterize the near-infrared flux emanating from the unusual Kepler light curve system KIC 8462852.
Disrupted exoplanet systems in the SuperWASP Archive
The aim of this research project has been to search for disrupted or disintegrating exoplanets; this search has been carried out using archival data from the Super-WASP (Wide Angle Search for
A 1574-day periodicity of transits orbiting KIC 8462852
Observations of the main sequence F3 V star KIC 8462852 (also known as Boyajian's star) revealed extreme aperiodic dips in flux up to 20% during the four years of the Kepler mission. Smaller dips (<
