OGLE

Amplitude: can be many magnitudes, in range 0.1-10 mag. Time-scale: is defined as Einstein Ring crossing time and is close to FWHM of the bell-like light curve of the event. Sources: can be located anywhere, however, the further source, the higher chance of it being microlensed.

OGLE Early Warning System (EWS) is detecting in real-time about 600 events per year towards the Galactic bulge.
