Citizen Sky epsilon Aurigae Papers

Citizen Sky was designed as a multi-year project focusing on the bright eclipsing variable, epsilon Aurigae. Time was dedicated to observing the eclipse of eps Aur, forming research teams, learning how to do some basic analysis of the data, and learning about writing a research paper. The capstone event of this process is the publication of a special issue of the Journal of the American Association of Variable Star Observers (JAAVSO) which is focused on papers related to epsilon Aurigae, similar objects and amateur observing techniques of bright stars.
