Kepler's measurements are so precise that most "false positives" (such as an eclipsing binary star
blended with the image of another star) can be weeded out upfront, without tedious and expensive radial-velocity measurements from the ground.
It used to seem like any other eclipsing binary star
Scanning nearly 10[degrees] south-southwest of Mirfak brings us to the famous eclipsing binary star
Beta ([beta]) Persei, or Algol.
The fastest-acting bright variable is the eclipsing binary star
Algol, or Beta Persei, shining in the northeast on September and October evenings.
The eclipsing binary star
with the longest known period is 3rd-magnitude Epsilon Aurigae near Capella.
Smaller and more compact, the open cluster Messier 34 makes an isosceles triangle with Kappa ([kappa]) Persei and Beta ([beta]) Persei, or Algol, the remarkable eclipsing binary star
whose schedule of light dips is listed monthly in Celestial Calendar (see page 78).
Using telescopes in Arizona and Chile, a group led by Phillip Cargile (Vanderbilt University) has monitored an eclipsing binary star
in the Orion Nebula (M42) that confounds stellar-evolution models, as reported at the January AAS meeting.
detect circumbinary planets around a sample of up to 350 eclipsing binary stars
using eclipse timing and precision radial velocites.
There also are nine special-effects devices that project animations of astronomical events such as supernovae, the paths of traveling asteriods, solar and lunar eclipses, eclipsing binary stars
, and bolides, or exploding meteors, Shobbrook said.
Skelton were both registered for MScs and are working on eclipsing binary stars
under the supervision of Smits.
Our volunteers have also discovered new RR Lyrae variable stars, dwarf novae, and eclipsing binary stars
For eclipsing binary stars
the recommended minimum interval can be as little as 30, 20 or even 10 minutes during eclipse, depending upon the rapidity of the fade and rise.
