The lack of hydrogen allowed them to classify Gaia14aae as a very rare type of system known as an AM Canum Venaticorum (AM CVn), a type of Cataclysmic Variable system where both stars have lost all of their hydrogen.
Aside from cataclysmic variables, ASAS-SN has picked up two nearby tidal disruption events--extremely rare sightings of what occurs when a black hole captures a portion of a nearby star--and many dwarf flares, which are believed to emanate from stars with extremely strong magnetic fields.
AM CVn stars differ from most other cataclysmic variables (CVs) in the lack of hydrogen lines from their spectra.
The project shows that something as far away and otherworldly as an X-ray-emitting cataclysmic variable binary star system can be significant to humans for two distinct reasons - one scientific and one artistic.
Over the years, astronomers have found a multitude of these pairs of mercurial stars, known as cataclysmic variables.
The CCD Target List contains a range of projects, including collecting data on eclipsing binaries and cataclysmic variables (CVs).
UZ Fornacis is one of 15 known eclipsing magnetic Cataclysmic Variables (CVs).
This result suggests that cataclysmic variables are more common than previously thought.
Title: Time Series Photometry of the Cataclysmic Variable Systems VY Aquarii and V2491 Cygni
A photometric study of the cataclysmic variable ST LMi during 2005-2006', ApJ.
After astronomers accumulated evidence that the typical cataclysmic variable was part of a binary system, Cragg and Bornhurst followed U Geminorum intensively at minimum light, looking for eclipses during the star's quiescent periods.
