M82: Starburst in X-rays

Massive star winds and blasts from supernova explosions have created this starburst galaxy taken by the Chandra X-ray Observatory. This false color image resolves bright spots which are likely shocked supernova remnants and X-ray bright binary stars.

AAVSO Monographs are publications that contain AAVSO observations of one star and cover many years. Information about the star and the data is included in the background information section for each star. Some Monographs include an image of the historical light curve for the star. Monographsupplements are added periodically to keep the data for the star as up-to-date as possible. The data for each monograph is available on our data download page.

AAVSO long-term light curves on variable stars contain crucial information that has a significant bearing on many outstanding questions in astrophysics. These light curves define the behavior pattern of variable stars and provide basic sets of observations that may be used to correlate spectroscopic, photometric, and polarimetric multiwavelength data, and to match theoretical stellar models.

The AAVSO Monograph format enables us to present long-term variable star behavior, with each monograph containing 20 or more years of computer-generated light curves on one star. Each Supplement to a Monograph continues the light curves of the same star, bringing them more up-to-date.

Monographs contain AAVSO observations of one star and cover many years. You may order a print copy of a Monograph by contacting AAVSO HQ.

 The print copies also include light curves in many intervals covering the entire period. You can plot the curves for any interval from 1963 on using our online light curve generator.
