W Hydrae

Near the tail end of the expansive constellation of Hydra the sea serpent resides the bright southern semiregular-type variable star W Hydrae. The period of W Hya is just shy of a year at 361 days. Based on over 3,400 observations in the AAVSO International Database, the variable has a magnitude range of 5.7-10.0, making W Hya a great star for observers with binoculars and/or small telescopes who can observe to -28 degrees declination.
