Hi All

Recent observation of UW Cen suggests the (record??) deep minimum observed by SXN near April 1 2013 at 17.8V is still in progress. On December 30 2013 I observed it at 16.4V. This is yet another case of an RCB showing a major fade lasting a VERY LONG time.

Stay tuned for more RCB news coming soon.

regards to all,

This looks like the longest deep minimum in (at least) the past 60 years. No wonder I can't see it.
