  author={Asantha Cooray and James L. Elliot},
We revisit the GSC5249-01240 light curve obtained during its occultation by Saturn’s North polar region. In addition to refractive scintillations, the power spectrum of intensity fluctuations shows an enhancement of power between refractive and diffractive regimes. We identify this excess power as due to high amplitude spikes in the light curve and suggest… CONTINUE READING
