PQ And still active

Forums Variable Stars PQ And in very rare outburst PQ And still active

Gary Poyner

After 41 days since it’s first outburst for 32 years, PQ And is still active with the fourth rebrightening commencing on July 7.

All except number three have been short duration events of ~1d.  The third has been long in comparison ~3d. (see light curve from my own observations below)

I can’t recall the system which has had the most post outburst brightenings, but we have a way to go yet with four,  so please stick with PQ And for the foreseeable future.
