The trail of thy light gown,
Where boy and girl sat down?

And throws from heaven her silver light,
And sees the world asleep.

That hour, her secret prayer.

In science:

We aim at replacing the Hanbury Brown & Twiss experiment in this context, and present two fundamental limitations of an intensity interferometer: the requirement of a chaotic light source, and the rapid decreases of the amount of correlated fluctuations with surface’s temperature.

The implicit hypothesis of the chaotic nature of light in the Narrabri Stellar Intensity Interferometer experiment As said in the introduction, Brown & Twiss (1957) never made the hypothesis that the light source must be producing chaotic light.

We present near-infrared JHKS light curves for the double-lined eclipsing binary system 2MASS J05352184-0546085, in which both components have been shown to be brown dwarfs with an age of ∼ 1 Myr.

In addition, through a detailed analysis of the variability observed in the light curves out of eclipse, the rotation periods of both brown dwarfs are measured to be Prot,1 = 3.293 d and Prot,2 = 14.05 d.

To be clear, from the standpoint of the light-curve modeling alone there is no need for a large spotcovering fraction on either brown dwarf. A small areal coverage of ∼10% is sufficient to model the lowamplitude variations that we observe in the light curves.
