Quote:If you want to see a dark red one now, check out S Cep (SAO 10100). It's small but deep red every time I've looked at it over the past three years (B-V 4.1).

A man is a small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders.
Quote:The last time I looked at UU Aur was last January and my notes say "bright yellow-orange." I'll have to take another look at it.
