MIRA: Life of a Star

Mira is a red giant star in the constellation Cetus and was named by Jan Heweliusz (His family made a fortune brewing beer!!!) for "it acted like no other star" due to its variable periodicity and amplitude. She has many followers, some of which came this weekend, to witness her significant increase in brightness and document this event. Jan Heweliusz would be disappointed as he was the last old school astronomer who insisted on using a quadrant and alidade instead of more sophisticated technology such as telescopes.

Here are some images of Mira at her brightest.

Pretty bright!!

Looking great!!
