However, the visible spectrum showing emission lines including the Balmer and Paschen series as well as many Fe ii lines is emphatically not that of an RCB star. This star has all of the characteristics of a typical UX Ori star. It has a spectral type of approximately A2 and has excited an Hii...[Show more]
