Gaia variables on VSX

Friends,

 

As Gaia is continuing its work on astrometry finding interesting variables as a side-product, your VSX team is working hard to ensure that new variable stars are propperly catalogued on VSX for our community's use. A great example is the RR Lyra star Gaia16acy that can be found under:

Here's the phased plot of the variable provided by Sebastian Otero:

Many thanks to the VSX team for keeping our database up-to-date! 

Best wishes - clear skies,

Stella.
