Continued observations as reported in PLANET anomaly update 2004 #14-1 (issued 6-Aug, 7:45 UT) carried out by PLANET with the 1.54m Danishtelescope at ESO LaSilla (Chile), the Canopus 1.0m telescope near Hobart (Tasmania, Australia), and the Perth 0.6m telescope at Bickley (Western Australia) reveal a smooth second peak around HJD = 2453219.5 +/- 0.5 (2-Aug, 0:00 UT +/- 12 h) with a magnification of about 1.25 mag above baseline in agreement with OGLE data taken over the same period. The event is expected to approach a light curve roughly consistent with that of point-like sources and lenses within several days after the second peak.
In general, lightcurves with two smooth peaks as observed in this event are compatible with a stellar binary lens or a binary source. A closer analysis will show which of these interpretations is the more likely.
The progress of this event can be seen on our regularly updated lightcurve.
