The Astronomy DSO list specifies which Deep Sky Objects may be covered in the Astronomy event that year.

2012 DSOs

Previous Years' DSO Lists

Name Images Constellation Magnitude Distance Coordinates External Links
Epsilon Aurigae Epsilon aurigae.jpg Epsilon Auriga.jpg Auriga Apparent: 2.9 normally, 3.8 during eclipse; Absolute: -6.0 ~2000 light years Right Ascension: 05h 01m 58.1s; Declination: +43° 49’ 24” AAVSO: Epsilon Aurigae Citizen Sky: Epsilon Aurigae
Epsilon Aurigae is an eclipsing binary. One part is a white giant, and the other appears to be a star shrouded by a dark cloud of dust. In the middle of this cloud, there is a clearing where the star probably is, so during an eclipse, the system appears momentarily brighter as this clearing passes over the giant. An observation project of Epsilon Aurigae took place from 2009-2011.
