1 SWASP J140747.93-394542.6 (hereafter referred to as J1407), a ~0.9 solar mass pre-main sequence K5 star and a member of Sco Cen, exhibited a long (~54 day), deep (>3.3 mag), and complex eclipse centered on 29 April 2007 (Mamajek et al. 2012). We present here a model of the event as a circumsecondary disk eclipsing a star.
