An amazing observation and an amazingly fortuitous coincidence to catch this:

NASA: Stellar Flare Blasts Exoplanet

... On Sept. 7, 2011, just eight hours before Hubble was scheduled to observe the transit, Swift was monitoring the star when it unleashed a powerful flare. ...

Amazing stuff! Highly serendipitous for Science in action!...
