Abstract

Some objects in the sky vary over time in terms of how much of their energy reaches the earth. Studying how the energy varies, and identifying any periodicities, will give clues as to what is actually happening at the source.

The purpose of this paper is to document the current methods involved in gathering and processing data, specifically on the variable object Markarian 501. The intent is that this will provide a foundation for later work to automate the process.
