Bruce F. Small

Plantation, Florida




In the interval JD 2441688 to JD 2441831 the author made a total of 85 visual observations of the Classical Cepheid RT Aurigae (602230). With a period of 3.73 days and a visual range of 4.5m to 5.8m, the star is ideally suited for binocular viewing. The observations were taken at random and then reduced relative to the elements given in Kukarkin et al., 1969, "General Catalog of Variable Stars".
