Multi-epoch animations for six UV Ceti (flare) stars. Because they are red dwarf stars, the known UV Ceti stars are confined to the immediate solar neighborhood. Many such stars have relatively large proper motions. Among the UV Ceti stars, WX UMa has the largest proper motion -- over five arcseconds per year. This means that charts for these stars must be updated occasionally to reflect their changing positions.
All of the following material was taken directly from William Tyler Olcott's book entitled Star Lore of All Ages, published in 1911 by The Knickerbocker Press. William Tyler Olcott was the founder of the AAVSO in 1911.
V723 Cas was discovered by M. Yamamoto, Okazaki, Aichi, Japan, on 1995 August 24.57 UT at photographic magnitude 9.2. The finding was made using a 200-mm f/4.0 lens, PO0 filter, and T-Max 400 film. A report by G.V. Williams of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics shows percursory evidence of this nova located on the Palomar red plate of magnitude 18-19, as seen using the Digital Sky Survey (AAVSO Alert Notices 213, 214, 217, 218, 230; IAUC 6213).
