SPECIAL AAVSO ALERT NOTICE ON DWARF NOVAE

 

Do continue your close monitoring of dwarf novae. Dr. Stiening from Stanford University and his colleagues will be observing these stars from Nov. 25th to Dec. 4th at Mt. Lemon, Arizona, and they have requested our help once again.

Special Notice #391: Targets Remaining in Northern Dwarf Novae Campaign

December 2, 2014: AAVSO Alert Notice 505 (http://www.aavso.org/aavso-alert-notice-505) announced the campaign on several northern dwarf novae by Deanne Coppejans and colleagues. This campaign, searching for radio jets in dwarf novae, has been moving very quickly! Thanks to your observations and timely notifications, three of the five sets of VLA observations available for the targets have been used on Z Cam, RX And, and YZ Cnc. The PI is extremely appreciative and thanks you all for your excellent work.

NOVA SCUTI 1991

AAVSO observers help solve a mystery about an important variable star

A group of astronomers led by Dr. James Miller-Jones of Curtin University and the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research have published a revised distance to the famed variable star SS Cygni, solving a major mystery surrounding this star and its behavior.  Their work was made possible due to the dedication of dozens of observers worldwide who monitor SS Cygni and report their observations to the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO).

Special Notice #334: Outburst of the possible old nova GR Ori

February 11, 2013: Observer Rod Stubbings (Tetoora Road, Vic., Australia) reports an outburst of the suspected old nova GR Ori (== Nova Ori 1916), observing the star at a visual magnitude of 13.0 on 2013 February 11.476 UT (JD 2456334.976).  This observation was confirmed by observer Stephen Hovell (Kaitaia, New Zealand), who also reported the star at 13.0 on February 11.461.
