Abstract

RY Carinae is classified in the General Catalog of Variable Stars by Kukarkin et al. (1970) as Mira type with period 421.53 days, a brightest maximum of 9.8m visual and faintest minimum of < 15.0m visual. The notes to the catalog indicate that average maximum is 11.0m and average minimum 15.0m. There is also a remark to the effect that, since J.D. 2423600 the period has decreased to 419 days with considerable variation.
