Due to the New England winter storm currently affecting the area, phone coverage at the AAVSO may be much reduced until Wednesday. The staff is still available via email, and we suggest using that method to contact us if you need assistance.

Timings for the eclipse contact points and mid-eclipse, length of ingress and egress, average magnitude during eclipse, and timings for out-of-eclipse variations have been determined in the V band for the long period eclipsing binary epsilon Aurigae during the 2009–2011 eclipse. This has been done with data from the International Epsilon Aurigae Campaign 2009 and AAVSO. Comparison with data from previous eclipses has also been made.
