AA Tau observing campaign underway

Due to the New England winter storm currently affecting the area, phone coverage at the AAVSO may be much reduced until Wednesday. The staff is still available via email, and we suggest using that method to contact us if you need assistance.

A new observing campaign on the YSO AA Tau kicks off today. Taurus is a bear to observe through August and into September - it's an early morning region of the sky - but THAT IS WHY OUR HELP IS NEEDED. For the professional observatories, it is a difficult time slot, and many of the US ones are offline now because of the US Southwest monsoon season. WITHOUT YOUR VISUAL/CCD SNAPSHOT OBSERVATIONS, THE SATELLITE OBSERVATIONS PLANNED FOR AA TAU WILL NOT BE POSSIBLE. Please see AAVSO Alert Notice 488 for details.

Many thanks for your help! and good observing  -  Elizabeth Waagen, AAVSO HQ
