So you are interested in variable stars...

Variable stars are stars that change measurably in brightness. When you see stars in the night sky, they may seem to be the same night after night. But if you watch them closely, and over time, you'll see they may change quite a bit. In fact, at some level almost all stars are "variable". Even our Sun is a variable star!
