Example of observed photometry, fitted light curve, and colors for object 2014 UK225. Observed r, g, z, and J measurements are shown by circles. Those points adjusted to r band based on the fitted colors are plotted as triangles. The target exhibits an ∼0.06 mag increase in brightness over the duration of the sequence. This change in brightness is comparable to the precision in measured colors of the source and is accounted for by our light-curve fitting technique.
