Note: This campaign has been extended through the 2018 observing season.
August 4, 2017: Dr. Margarita Karovska (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) has requested "visual, photometric, and spectroscopic observations of the symbiotic variable R Aqr in preparation for and in support of Chandra and HST observations currently scheduled for October 2017."
October 3, 2007: It was reported in CBET 1091 by U. Munari et al. that the symbiotic star AG Draconis is again in outburst following the decline from its April 2006 bright outburst. They note that the decline apparently halted on 2007 July 07, and has since brightened steadily. Their observations place AG Dra at V = 8.98 on 2007 September 30.8 UT (B = 9.69 and B-V = +0.71). They also note the presence of strong hydrogen and helium emission lines.
