Thanks to a tremendous effort by Sebastian Otero and Patrick Wils, 148,000 additional stars from the ASAS-SN survey and Kepler's K2 mission were recently added to the Variable Star Index (VSX). This brings the total number of stars in this incredibly useful catalog of variable stars to over 750,000! If you have not had a chance to look at it or use it to learn more about your favorite stars, please take a look: https://www.aavso.org/vsx/index.php
