Eclipse VVCEP: Don’t forget to observe

Forums Spectroscopy Radius Estimation of VV Cep´s disk Eclipse VVCEP: Don’t forget to observe


 Indeed, thanks for this alert Ernst,

 Besides your message: “it is not exlude that the eclipse could begin some days before the calculated date August 4th”

 it could also be later. According to the work of Leedjärv (A&A 1999) it seems the orbital period has a tendency of increasing between the eclipses due to a possible mass transfer or mass ejection. (Approximately 1% per two former eclipses).…349..511L

Anyway we hope the weather conditions will be favourable at the very moment of the (calculated) beginning of the eclipse.

Usefull weather info with “observation location” input possibility:  or 

Kind regards,
