Information Bulletin on Variable Stars No. 6000

1121 Budapest, Konkoly Thege M. út 15-17, Lecture Hall

1. Opening address: Béla Szeidl (10 min)

2. On the long-term variability of the B[e] supergiant Hen-S22 over
the half-century life time of IBVS: Christiaan Sterken, Vrije
Universiteit, Brussels (45 min)

Abstract: I present a discussion of new and archived photometry of
the LMC B[e]
supergiant Henize-S22, covering a time base that roughly corresponds to
the lifespan of IBVS.

The main conclusion of this study is that the object is slowly brightening
and reddening, a typical signature of an LBV S Doradus phase. But also
that significant systematic differences between all involved systems of
photometric measurement hamper the interpretation of the color behaviour,
and that voluminous modern data catalogues can be systematically off by
0.1 to 0.2 magnitudes in V. This example also underlines the necessity to
maintain the possibilities of publishing variable-star data - whatever
the number of measurements - in an open-access peer-reviewed journal.
