Dr Dirk Froebrich on the subject of ‘HOYS CAPS’. We have recently discovered that the young star V1490Cyg (20:50:53.6 +44:21:01, situated in the Pelican Nebula IC5070) is
periodically occulted by material in its circumstellar disk. This is a project amateurs can make observations to support the University of Kents observing project.
HOYS CAPS is a citizen science project = Hunting Outbursting Young Stars with the Centre for Astrophysics and Planetary Sciences, at the University of Kent
There will also be society news, an astronomy update and refreshments will be served.
