Alert and Special Notices

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.

AAVSO Alert Notice

Alert Notices are published irregularly and alert those interested to the discovery of novae, unusual activity of variable stars, and requests from astronomers for simultaneous AAVSO observations. They are available online or by e-mail.

AAVSO Special Notice

Special Notices include announcements on interesting and/or rare stellar activity that do not involve new coordinated campaigns or may not rise the level of importance of an Alert Notice. The goal is for the Special Notie to be quick and brief. Should the announcement warrant further attention, it may be followed by an Alert Notice.
