[141.10] Analysis of Multi-Color Microvariability in S5 0716+714

R.S. Walters, M.T. Carini, L. Hopper (Western Kentucky University)

B and I band optical monitoring of the Blazar S5 0716+714 was performed on March 5th – 9th 2003 with the 42” Hall telescope at Lowell Observatory in order to study the multi-color microvariability of this object. Microvariability is defined as variability within the source on time scales of minutes to hours. PKS 0716+714 was in a relatively bright state during these observations and underwent a major outburst within the following 12 months. We present the results of color, structure function and cross correlation analysis of these 5 nights of data.
