eclipsing binary A binary star whose orbital plane is orientated such that each component is totally or partly eclipsed by the other during each orbital period. The effect observed is a periodic decrease in the light from the system (see illustration). The deeper minimum . Epsilon Aurigae is a long-period eclipsing binary that likely contains an F0Ia star and a circumstellar disk enshrouding a hidden companion, assumed to be a main-sequence B star. High uncertainty in its parallax has kept the evolutionary status of the system in question and, hence, the true nature of .

Spectroscopic Eclipsing Binaries Many times the stars are too close -- or one star is too bright -- for us to actually see two stars. Yet by looking at the spectrum of the star we can tell it is a binary, and derive the orbit and mass of the stars. As astronomer Otto Struve wrote in , “The history of the eclipsing binary Epsilon Aurigae is in many respects the history of astrophysics.” And now that history is about to get a new chapter.

The 7 chapters of this book, written by a group of experts, have been carefully edited to form a coherent volume that offers a thorough overview of the subject to both professional and student.

A series of red electronic spectra obtained between andand of UBV photometric observations of the eclipse, were analyzed in an effort to better understand the eclipsing binary eps Aur. The main results follow. (1) We attempted to recover a spectrum of the companion by disentangling the observed spectra of the eps Aur binary failed, but we were able to.

A Spectroscopic Eclipsing Binary System Near alpha Aurigae is located a spectroscopic eclipsing binary system (star A and star B) which have nearly circular orbits about their common center of mass with a period of days.

The system is oriented such that the orbital plane is. Epsilon Aurigae (ε Aur) is a visually bright, eclipsing binary star system with a period of years. The cause of each month-long eclipse has been a subject of controversy for nearly A single-epoch low-resolution Goddard High Resolution Spectrograph spectrum of the eclipsing binary epsilon Aurigae was obtained while the secondary was orbiting toward eclipse by the primary.

This therefore becomes the longest-period eclipsing binary system yet discovered, more than twice as long as that of the currently longest-period system, $\epsilon$ Aurigae. Ludendorff wasn't far from the mark; although the orbital period is now believed to be the lower value of years, epsilon Aurigae is indeed a long-period, eclipsing binary.

And, though he may not have known it at the time, his closing pronouncement that epsilon Aurigae was a "strange system" would be as true today as it was in Epsilon Aurigae is a multiple star system in the northern constellation of Auriga. It is an unusual eclipsing binary system comprising an F0 supergiant and a companion which is generally accepted to be a huge dark disk orbiting an unknown object, possibly a binary system of two small B-type stars.

The distance to the system is still a subject of debate, but data from the Gaia spacecraft puts its distance Constellation: Auriga.

High-Resolution Spectroscopy of Long-Periodic Eclipsing Binary Epsilon Aurigae Alex Golovin, Yuliana Kuznyetsova, Maxim Andreev (Submitted on 8 Aug ) Abstract: The results of spectroscopic observations of long-periodic eclipsing binary Epsilon Aur are reported.

The observations were carried out during 2 nights in Epsilon Aurigae is a complicated binary star that undergoes optical eclipses every 27 years, including the present year. An update is given here on the array of photometric and spectroscopic observations underway, thanks to the eclipse observing campaign and its dedicated participants.
