BV And

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.

Hi all,

What kind of object is BV And? Is it really a dwarf nova? I've once red it could be a AGN. Can someone sort this out?

Cheers,

Eddy

 

It's a CV.

Hi Eddy,

There's a 2000 paper by Liu and Hu (ApJS 128, 387) which found hydrogen Balmer emission without redshift and other spectral features consistent with it being a CV rather than an AGN.

OK thanks Matthew! There is not much written about that star...

Cheers,
