About this image

Further to my previous post this montage shows (L to R) the central part of Hinds Variable Nebula before, during and after the temporary small increase in nebulosity just to the south west of the star T Tauri. North to the top and West to the right on each image. From inspection of images I have taken the small increase started sometime between 2021 April 9 and 2021 October 30 and disappeared sometime between 2021 December 23 and 2022 January 5. Suggesting a maximum period of visibility of 271 days.
