Abstract

We have combined B, V, I time-series photometry from three different telescopes (SUBARU, TNG and HST) to study the variable star population of the remote Galactic globular cluster NGC 2419 and derive hints on a possible extragalactic origin for this cluster. We have discovered 40 new variables (34 RR Lyrae stars, 3 SX Phoenicis stars, Scuti 1 eclipsing binary system and 2 red irregular variables) doubling the number of known variable stars in NGC 2419.
