R Leporis (Hind's Crimson star) brightness cycle
      #5590161 - 12/26/12 07:20 PM

Does anyone here know where Hind's Crimson Star (R Leporis) is in its brightness cycle? I checked the AAVSO site, but there was no info (surprisingly).

Thanks in advance,

Roy in Maryland

I looks like it should be around 8th or 9th magnitude according to the AAVSO lightcurve generator although estimates vary a lot for these very red stars.

I believe it was at minimum in November 2012, and will be at max in late June.

R Lep may have reached maximum in November but with a period of 445 days minimum (mag 11.5) won't be reachad until later in 2013.

Here's the AAVSO lightcurve for the last 1,000 days:
R Leporis

Many thanks go to all of the observers who contributed.
