In this talk, I will focus on classes of objects whose light curves show distinctive "dips" that can tell us a surprising amount about planet formation, evolution, and death. These include disintegrating planets, young dipper systems, likely exocomets, and unlikely alien megastructures. Event Location: Hennings 318
