hunting for UXORs among EA stars
As leader of the YSO group at AAVSO, I am interested in running a campaign to try and find UX Orionis-type stars among the less well-known 'Algol' stars. UX Ori stars (UXORs) are young stars engaged in the formation of planetary systems and which show Algol-like falls due to obscuration by accreting planetesimals in the circumstellar disc. For this reason, certain stars (BO Cep for example) were once classed as Algol-type stars but have later turned out to be UXORs!
Since YSOs are strongly found in low galactic latitudes, the campaign would only search among those stars in, or close to, the plane of the milky way.
