Variable Star is a science fiction novel by American author Spider Robinson, based on the surviving seven pages of an eight-page novel outline by the late Robert A. Heinlein († ). The book is set in a divergent offshoot of Heinlein's Future History and contains many references to works by Heinlein and other authors.

Spider Robinson was commissioned by RAHs literary executor to finish the work and he did, publishing the book almost 20 years after the grand masters death/5.

The Web Site for The International Variable Star Index (VSX). A variable star is a star that is sometimes brighter or dimmer. Most stars have only very small differences in brightness, like the Sun.

But some stars can vary hugely. There are generally two types of variable stars: A star being eclipsed, where the changes in brightness. A plot of the period-luminosity relationship for metal-rich (type I) and metal-poor (type II or W Virginis) Cepheids is presented at Because of this remarkable property that the period of a variable star is proportional to its luminosity, these stars make excellent tools for.

Welcome to the Astronomical League's Variable Star Observing Program. This is a joint program of the Astronomical League and American Association of Variable Star Observers. It uses AAVSO resources and provides valuable data for Astronomers and researchers. Much that we know about stars and the universe came from studying variable stars.

3/5(3). Variable stars are divided into two large classes: eclipsing variables and physical variables. Eclipsing eclipsing variable is a system of two stars revolving around a common center of mass, where the orbital plane of the stars is so close to the line of sight of a terrestrial observer that the eclipse of one star by the other is observed every revolution, accompanied by a.

Several cycles of three pulsating variable stars are shown in the graphs to the right. The particular RR Lyrae sub-type shown in the top pane is known as an RRab star which has a large amplitude asymmetric light curve and its period tends to be toward the large end of the RR Lyrae range.

An RRc star is shown in the central pane. ASAS-SN Name Other Names Right Ascension Declination Mean VMag Amplitude Period Type; ASASSN-V J+ ATLASJ+ A variable star also called a type II Cepheid variable which has a period between 1 to 60 days. They periods are related to intrinsic luminosity.

W Virginis stars are population II, and are approximately magnitudes fainter than type I Cepheid variables. Their masses, however, are less than 1 solar mass, so it is apparent that the W Virginis stars fall into a different stage of stellar.

Variable star definition is - a star whose brightness changes usually in more or less regular periods. A never-before-published masterpiece from science fiction's greatest writer, rediscovered after more than half a Joel Johnston first met Jinny, ISBN Variable Stars Stellar Heartbeats Variable stars are stars that vary in brightness, or magnitude.

There are many different types of variable stars. One group of variable stars is the pulsating variables. These stars expand and contract in a repeating cycle of size changes. The change in size can be observed as a change in apparent brightness. Start with a normal star like the Sun. Fusion of protons into helium in the star’s center generates heat and pressure that can support the weight of the star.

The Sun was mostly made of hydrogen (=1 proton + 1 electron) when it was born, and started with enough hydrogen to last like this for about 15 billion years.

The life and death of a low. Variable star observing is the most popular of "real science" activities for amateurs, and Gerry Good's book provides everything needed. The first part of the book provides a highly detailed account of the various classes of variable star, with examples, illustrations and physical descriptions.

A Cepheid variable (/ ˈ s ɛ f iː ɪ d, ˈ s iː f iː ɪ d /) is a type of star that pulsates radially, varying in both diameter and temperature and producing changes in brightness with a well-defined stable period and amplitude. A strong direct relationship between a Cepheid variable's luminosity and pulsation period established Cepheids as important indicators of cosmic benchmarks for.

Clue: First-known variable star. We have 1 answer for the clue First-known variable the results below. Possible Answers: MIRA; Related Clues: Red giant in the constellation Cetus. W Virginis is another name for Type II cepheid variable generally have low metallicities, low masses (less than one solar mass), are on average magnitudes fainter than Type I Cepheids, and have pulsation periods of between 1 and days.

Like Type I Cepheid variables, W Virginis stars are located in the instability strip of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram, and their pulsations. Prior to this study, 36 variable and suspected variable stars were known in this cluster (Osborn ; Clement et al.

Of these stars, five were not observed by us. We find v3, v4, v10, v12, and v13 to be constant in light. Surprisingly, only two out of the ten variable star candidates of Kadla et al.

same time it varies in type from a F3 at about 6,K to a G3 at a lower temperature of 5,°K. It is a large star, some times the diameter of the Sun with perhaps a litle less than 5 solar masses. Beta Cephei Beta Cephei is a hot blue white star, type B2III. It is the prototype star of the Beta Cepheid sub-class of variable stars.

Spider is delighted to report his agent Eleanor Wood has, in the worst times in sf publishing history, sold Tor Books not just one but three sequels to VARIABLE STAR, to be known collectively as The Orphan Stars Trilogy. For more information, listen to Spider On.

The star FO Vir, a recently discovered eclipsing binary with a period of days, has been observed photometrically and spectroscopically.

If the first variable star found in a constellation does not have a Greek letter name it is given the letter R. The next star is given the letter S and so on until Z is reached. After Z, the next variable star is named RR, then RS and so on until RZ. Then SS to SZ and so on until ZZ. Then we begin at AA, AB and continue on until QZ.

A number of stars show very little variablility, such as alpha Virginis, an "Ell." type variable: to ever four days and rho Virginis is a delta Scuti variable: R Virginis is a long-period variable with a range from to every days, exceptionally short for a Mira type variable.

Variable Stars. Stars appear to shine with a constant light; however, thousands of stars vary in brightness. The brightness that a star appears to have (apparent magnitude) from our perspective here on Earth depends upon its distance from Earth and its actual intrinsic brightness (absolute magnitude.).

Abstract. Variable stars and star cluster go together like cheese and wine. In Chap. 1, we saw how Shapley used RR Lyrae variable stars to map out the general scale of the galaxy; and later how Hubble used Cepheids to show that M31, the Andromeda galaxy, lay distant to our galactic shores.

W Virginis stars. Variables of the W Virginis type. These are pulsating variables of the galactic spherical component (old disk) population with periods of approximately to 35 days and amplitudes from to mag in V. They obey a period-luminosity relation different from. puter generated star charts are excellent for pro-ducing finder charts for those variable stars which are difficult to locate, although the official sequence should always be used for making estimates, so An introduction to variable star observing by Roger Pickard Figure 1.

Variable stars (examples) The reasons for changes in the brightness of a star can be divided into two categories: (1) orbiting companions or (2) stellar astrophysics. (1) In principle, the variability from orbiting companions (this includes eclipsing binaries or transiting planets) should be as regular as clockwork.

The North Star (Polaris) is a Cepheid variable. With careful observations, the brightness varies slightly (between + and + in apparent magnitude) over a period of just under 4 days.

Cepheid variables are particularly interesting because they provide astronomers with a valuable tool for determining distance. In simple terms, a variable star is a star whose luminosity changes or fluctuates as seen from Earth. The changes in luminosity can be caused by a wide range of possible causes, some of which involve the structure/composition of the star, while others may involve extrinsic factors such as a companion star that eclipses a normally relatively stable star periodically.
