Eclipsing Binary Stars from Space

  • Hans Bruntt (a1) and John Southworth (a2)

Abstract

We have begun a programme to obtain high-precision photometry of bright detached eclipsing binary (dEB) stars with the Wide-field InfraRed Explorer (WIRE) satellite (Bruntt & Buzasi 2006). Due to the small aperture of WIRE, only stars brighter than V = 6 can be observed. We are collecting data for about a dozen dEB targets and here we present preliminary results for three of them. We have chosen dEBs with primary components of B and early A type. One of our aims is to combine the information from the light curve analyses of the eclipses with asteroseismic information from analysis of the pulsation of the primary component.
