Help us test the New Chat Room

We would like to do one more test of the new AAVSO chat software before we officially go live with it and we need your help!! 

We'd like to get a chat going with a large group of people so if you are free today at 5:30 pm Eastern, please take a few minutes to visit: http://www.aavso.org/general-chat 

Be sure to let us know of any issues you have - either via the chat, by email, or using the "contact us" form on the AAVSO web page.

30 Min Downtime at 1700UTC 6 Dec

The AAVSO network, including the website, will be unavailable for about 30 minutes at 1700UTC (1200EST) on 6 December for the installation of a new network card in the firewall.

Thanks!

Special Notice #226: Request for observations of FS Aurigae

December 4, 2010: Further to AAVSO Alert Notice 428, the star FS Aurigae appears to be entering outburst.  The star was in quiescence on 2010 December 3.22 (JD 2455533.72; V = 16.3, G. Lubcke) but had risen to V=14.9 on 2010 December 4.23 (JD 2455534.73; R. Campbell).  Subsequent observations by H. McGee and A. Novichonok have confirmed that FS Aur is rising.  Time series observations of FS Aurigae are encouraged at this time; any and all filters may be used including clear, but V filter is preferred.
