Globular clusters are extremely luminous objects. Their mean luminosity is the equivalent of approximat most luminous are 50 times brighter.

The brightest stars are the red giants, bright red stars with an absolute magnitude of −2, about times the Sun’s brightness, or luminosity. In relatively few globular clusters have stars as intrinsically faint as the Sun been.

Rutily. About 2, variable stars are known in the or more globular clusters that have been examined.

Of these, perhaps 90 percent are members of the class called RR Lyrae variables. Other variables that occur in globular clusters are Population II Cepheids, RV Tauri, and U Geminorum stars, as well as Mira stars, eclipsing binaries, and novas.

A globular cluster is a spherical collection of stars that orbits a galactic ar clusters are very tightly bound by gravity, which gives them their spherical shapes, and relatively high stellar densities toward their name of this category of star cluster is derived from the Latin, globulus—a small sphere.

Occasionally, a globular cluster is known simply as a globular. Variable stars are generally analysed using photometry, spectrophotometry and ements of their changes in brightness can be plotted to produce light regular variables, the period of variation and its amplitude can be very well established; for Variable stars in globular clusters and in related systems.

Cretainly a number of Type 2 Cepheids in globular clusters come to mind. I am not sure what the VSX/AUID/AID or sequence situation is for these stars. Someone else will have to speak to that.

M2 V1, V5, V6, V M3 V M5 V42, V M12 V1. Cheers, Doug. The two types of clusters, open clusters and globular clusters, have distinctly different characteristics.

Astronomers also recognize a third type of stellar assemblage, associations, whose stars are coeval in formation, but that over time have dispersed over a much wider region in space. Open clusters. Open clusters are the smaller clusters of stars found in the Galaxy, both in terms of.

The Globular Clusters themselves are thoroughly covered in this book, but their many uses in studying Galaxies are only touched on. A more recent volume dealing primarily with the use of globular clusters in Extragalactic research is: "Globular Clusters - Guides to Galaxies", eds Richtler and Larsen (Springer, )(ISBN).

Variable stars have a unique part to play in Galactic astronomy. Among the most important of these variables are the Cepheids (types I and II), the RR Lyraes and the Miras (O- and C-rich).

This Proceedings book contains papers about the main topics of the conference, viz. RR Lyrae variables, Type II Cepheids, and related objects; yellow and red pulsating variables in the halo; cataclysmic variables and X-ray sources in the halo and globular clusters; variable stars and stellar streams in the halo; origin, structure, dynamics, and Cited by:   Globular clusters are densely packed, spherical collections of ancient stars.

They contain hundreds of thousands, and sometimes millions, of stars. Based on a search of the literature up to May, the number of known variable stars in Galactic globular clusters is approximately Of these, more than have known periods and the majority (approximately ) are of the RR Lyrae type.

In addition to the RR Lyrae population, there are approximately eclipsing binaries, SX Phoenicis variables, 60 Cepheids (including Cited by: Variable stars are divided into two large classes: eclipsing variables and physical variables.

Eclipsing eclipsing variable is a system of two stars revolving around a common center of mass, where the orbital plane of the stars is so close to the line of sight of a terrestrial observer that the eclipse of one star by the other is observed every revolution, accompanied by a.

RR Lyrae variables are periodic variable stars, commonly found in globular are used as standard candles to measure (extra)galactic distances, assisting with the cosmic distance class is named after the prototype and brightest example, RR Lyrae. They are pulsating horizontal branch stars of spectral class A or F, with a mass of around half the Sun's.

Globular clusters are generally composed of hundreds of thousands of low-metal, old stars. The type of stars found in a globular cluster are similar to those in the bulge of a spiral galaxy but confined to a volume of only a few million cubic pars.

In a newly published study, astronomers detail the results of a photometric search for variable stars in the core of the globular cluster M4. A globular cluster is a roughly spherical ensemble of stars, as many as several million of them, gravitationally bound together in groups whose diameters can be as small as only tens of light-years.

More than a century ago, Solon Bailey's pioneering investigations of the variable stars in globular clusters allowed the first period-amplitude diagrams to be constructed for their RR Lyrae stars. Abstract We present results of a search for variable stars in the globular cluster M Application of the image subtraction method to the ground-based times-series of CCD frames resulted in finding nine new RR Lyr stars, six of the RRc and three of the RRab type, and four SX Phe variables.

The Architecture of the Galaxy. The Milky Way Galaxy consists of a thin disk containing dust, gas, and young and old stars; a spherical halo containing populations of very old stars, including RR Lyrae variable stars and globular star clusters; a thick, more diffuse disk with stars that have properties intermediate between those in the thin disk and the halo; a peanut-shaped nuclear bulge.

Abstract. This is the second in a series of papers studying the variable stars in Large Magellanic Cloud globular clusters. The primary goal of this series is to study how RR Lyrae stars in Oosterhoff-intermediate systems compare to their counterparts in Oosterhoff I/II systems.

Dozens of new variable stars found in a dense globular cluster. The so-called 'Oosterhoff groups' are two populations of globular clusters, nearly.

A globular cluster is a spherical collection of stars that orbits a galactic core as a satellite. Globular clusters are very tightly bound by gravity, which gives them their spherical shapes and. Based on a search of the literature up to May, the number of known variable stars in Galactic globular clusters is approximately Of these, more than have known periods and the majority (approximately ) are of the RR Lyrae by: RR Lyrae variable stars are well represented in globular clusters, and they also have fixed period-luminosity relationships, which makes them useful as distance calculators.

Typically, class-A RR Lyrae variable stars vary in brightness by between 20% and % over periods that vary from a few hours to about a day or so.

Abstract: Based on over BV images of M4 collected in years we obtain light curves of 22 variables, 10 of which are newly detected objects. We identify four detached eclipsing binaries and eight contact binaries. Accurate periods are found for all but two variables.

Nineteen variables are proper-motion members of the cluster, and the remaining three are field : J.

A variable star is a star that is sometimes brighter or dimmer. Most stars have only very small differences in brightness, like the Sun. But some stars can vary hugely. There are generally two types of variable stars: A star being eclipsed, where the changes in brightness.

Variable stars in galactic globular clusters.We report on the discovery and analysis of 14 short-period variable stars in the field of the southern globular cluster NGClocated within roughly 2 mag on either side of the main-sequence turnoff.

Eleven of these variable stars are eclipsing binaries, one is an RR Lyrae, and two are thus far unclassified by: Globular clusters are spheroidal shaped groups of stars, while open clusters do not have a definitive shape.

But there is much more to these groupings of stars than meets the eye. As their name suggests, globular clusters are globule-shaped balls of hundreds of thousands of stars all crammed into an area a few hundred light years across.
