Welcome

We recently released a significant update to the backend systems for the AAVSO website. While most of the bugs introduced by this update have been fixed, there may still be problems we haven't fixed. If you run into a problem, please email webmaster@aavso.org

Hope observers all over the world will drop by and see what's new with new stars!

NEW's the word! The YSO section is the newest AAVSO forum, but you don't have to be a turbocharged astrophysicist to participate, or to do some useful science on these interesting objects. If you have any questions that need answering, either myself or (more likely!) our science adviser Prof. Bill Herbst will answer them for you if we can. Our website, where you can download lots of NEW charts for previously unobserved stars, is at:

  Thanks for the link you sent, Mike. I'm already looking at the charts and printing some off. You've done an incredible amount of work on these, and on the site itself! Hope everyone checks it out.

Kudos!

Congratulations, Michael.

You've done a great job with the section website. Just finished reading the whole thing, and now I'm excited about YSOs!

Good luck with everything, and if I can help you know where to find me.

Michael,

Greetings from across the pond!

Thanks for setting this up.  I'm always looking for a project, and I'll be adding YSO surveillance to my program stars.  Let me know if you have specific monitoring requests.  I'd like to look at the 41 or so fainter targets.
