Discovery of a peculiar Cepheid-like star towards the northern edge of the Small Magellanic Cloud
Context. For seven years, the EROS-2 project obtained a mass of photometric data on variable stars. We present a peculiar Cepheid-like star, in the direction of the Small Magellanic Cloud, which demonstrates unusual photometric behaviour over a short time interval. Aims. We report on data of the photometry acquired by the MARLY telescope and spectroscopy from the EFOSC instrument for this star, called EROS2 J005135-714459(sm.0060n13842), which resembles the unusual Cepheid HR 7308. Methods. The...[Show more]
