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.

CALL FOR PAPERS

for a special edition of the

Journal of the American Association of Variable Star Observers

dedicated to epsilon Aurigae, similar objects and amateur observing techniques of bright stars.

Special Notice #246: Continued Monitoring of epsilon Aurigae

August 8, 2011: The bright star epsilon Aurigae has emerged from its most recent eclipse that began in August, 2009. A BVRIJH light curve for the last 365 days of the eclipse can be viewed at the following URL.

Effects of dust on light-curves of ε Aur type stars (updated)

100728 Update: Dr. Budaj has offered a short description of the paper with a nice illustration, which can be read via the Citizen Sky forums.

The following is an abstract for a paper recently been posted to ArXiv (and accepted for publication in A&A Letters). The paper is based on your AAVSO observations of apsilon Aurigae and acknowledges AAVSO support.
