HadV46: new variable star (unusual?)
Katsumi Haseda (firstname.lastname@example.org) reports the discovery of a new large amplitude variable star. Although the light variation is not inconsitent with a Mira-type variable, the examination by Haseda of the RealSky image confirms the identificationith
= USNO0750.13650086 183404.041 -144500.23 (2000.0) 14.4 15.5
, which is not red as expected from the light variation. More detailed observation (multicolor photometry and possibly spectrocopy) would be desired to clarify the nature of the object. The object is bright now.
A formatted vsnet-newvar report will appear later. object YYYYMMDD(UT) mag code HadV46 19960525.676 126p Had.VSOLJ (*1) HadV46 19980816.522 <133p Had.VSOLJ HadV46 19981108.403 <133p Had.VSOLJ HadV46 19990219.822 <133p Had.VSOLJ HadV46 19990322.782 <131p Had.VSOLJ HadV46 19990831.483 <130p Had.VSOLJ HadV46 20000206.844 120p Had.VSOLJ HadV46 20000305.810 106p Had.VSOLJ (*1) revised to <130p after later examination of the original photograph Observer's code: Had: K.

I note that the odd colors (mb=14.7, mr=14.4 in USNO-A2.0 by the way) could be due to the very crowded nature of the field, which often results in the PMM classifier being unable to handle the scan data.

One might note that a Mira star of this brightness would have been easily recorded in IRAS PSC, but that the IRAS source mentioned looks more closely associated with the redder (on USNO) star. Probably a few immediate multicolor snapshots (or even an unfiltered CCD image) would solve the problem.

Subject: HadV46 USNO colour
First I not that this object appears to lie on the edge of a Lynd dark nebula, which is itself amongst a sea of other such nebu which I suppose should have made it appear even redder!
The A type star HIP 90991, a mag 5.7 star, lies quite close and if you can plot the USNO stars in this region as a half degree square of objects coded in 'b-r' by 'colour', and centred on HadV46's position, you'll note a strange vertical 'blue streak' amidst a 'sea of yellow' ascending from this HIP star [a bit generalised]. Although there is nothing to stop all these stars being blue here, at certain resolutions it looks like a drop of liquid that has run! HadV46's position lies just east of this 'blue streak'.
I'm quoting for object USNO0750.13595197 using version 1.3 of Arne Henden's freeware DOS search program on USNO A2.0 data [end figure RA = 4.049s, end figure Dec 00.23"], so I suppose you're quoting A1.0?
Katsumi Haseda (Aichi, Japan) reports the rapid fading of HadV46, the newly discovered possibly unusual variable star by Haseda (vsnet-alert 4381). We have obtained some CCD images this morning, and will inform the result later.

Message from Hitoshi Yamaoka:
I have done astrometry of HadV46 with Kyoto image taken on Mar. 14.9 UT with GSC-ACT references, then found that the object locates at 18h34m03s.16, -14o45'11".46 (J2000.0), which is not coincident to USNO0750.13650086 (which is suggested to be identified with HadV46 in vsnet-alert 4381). The accuracy is below 1". The nearest USNO star is about 3" apart from this location:
USNO0750.13648719 183402.899 -144511.66 (2000.0) 15.8 18.0
It is possible that this object is nova, new CV, or the other sort of exploding star. Further observation is extremely encouraged.
Hitoshi Yamaoka, Makoto Uemura, Taichi Kato
Further to add:
Unfiltered CCD photometry by the Kyoto team based on Tycho star has confirmed that the object is NOT red. The large amplitude of variability suggests some sort of eruptive or cataclysmic variable (including a nova).
