You can just run it from site.
I am not having any trouble with it now.

Ah, ..but this process is not ordinary extinction, in the classical sense.
I call it light speed unification. I have suggested numerous reasons for it.
It might depend on how much the star is moving because the properties of the
light paths to Earth might change considerably over months or years.
Most stars are considered to be pretty well 'fixed in space' however, so most
light paths should have rather similar properties..

Maybe. There are lots of possible factors to consider. For instance in the case
of a pair of very large stars, their own gravity might somehow constitute a
type of local EM reference frame which considerably unifies the speeds before
they leave the frame's 'sphere of influence'.

But that wouldn't reveal much because we cannot assume that unification rates
are anywhere near the same everywhere.
On the other hand, if we know the real distance and we know the predicted
distance for a particular light curve, we can get an idea of the unification
rate for that star.
