We have obtained and analyzed a light curve of the contact binary star system BX Tri. We chose BX Tri because of its very short period, which is one of the shortest periods among known binary systems. We wanted to observe a binary star system to help us gauge the sensitivity of our observing system and help us prepare to observe objects that require a higher sensitivity, like exoplanets.
