Quote:Great report. Your decription of VY CMa is fascinating. Must put it on my obs list!
Quote:Very interesting observation on VY CMa! I will give this one definitely a try. From your description, it resembles a bit R Aqr, though that one is a double star. What is the cause of the curved tail with VY CMa?
