Extract

Basic information about the star o and (HR 8762, HD 217675-6) is a bright (V=3.55m, B-V=-0.11m U-B=-0.50m) B6 III-Ve star. Its emission-line and shell spectrum is known to come and go on a time scale of years. In fact, the presence of a strong shell spectrum misled the authors of the HD catalogue to assign the star two HD numbers.

o and is a prototype of Be rapid light variables in the sense that it has the longest record of photoelectric monitoring which goes back to 1915! The long history of attempts to understand the variations of this star has recently been summarized by Harmanec (1983). Collecting and analyzing all historical photoelectric observations, Harmanec (1984) concluded that the light variations of o And can be understood as a superposition of a long-term cyclic (8.5y) variation with an amplitude over 0.1m (the star being faintest at the recorded shell maxima) and a rapid periodic variation with a period of 1.571272 days.
