According to a recent publication, the contact binary KIC 9832227 could produce a red nova event around 2022

Many articles in popular science sites:

Coordinates: 19 29 15.948 +46 37 19.89
V Mag = 12.4

A nice project for low res spectroscopy

Spectra are welcome for eruptive stars information letter

To All,

Last night I observed the KIC 983227, which I saw in the images of the guide, through the ATIK 314L +, it seems that the star is kept close to 12.4 magnitude, as it has always done.

The 12.4 is very far from my instrumental, (you know that means more noise than a signal).

In graph 1, it shows what is "usable" of the 5 integrations of 2000 seconds.

In graph 2, we see the result of passing the option "Filter" to the ISIS. with a value of 15.5.

In graph 3, it is a comparison of the two graphs in the Ha region.

Regards, Joan.

Belle tentative à cette résolution, Joan
Ce sera plus facile si l'événement nova prévu se produit.

I recorded photometry and a low resolution spectrum of this object on 18 April 2018. Magnitudes were B=13.17 and V=12.46. The spectrum is noisy but its general profile is in good agreement with spectral type G5V. VSX lists the spectral type as G5 and gives Frasca et al. Astronomy & Astrophysics, 594, A39 (2016) as source. The information is in the online version of their Table A.3.

Hello David,

Congrats for your spectrum, and many thanks for the specification of the spectral class to KIC 9832227, that I did not know.
I leave here again the graph 2, wihtout the instrumental response.

Regards, Joan.

I was able to capture spectrum data last night on KIC9832227 using my Shelyak LISA. My spectrum appears to match David’s very nicely. I have attached an annotated profile using Tim Lesters PlotSpectra and also the same profile but using the Rspec reference library where I searched for the best spectral type match to KIC9832227. As David said G5V gives the best match. My data is displayed in Red and the reference profile for a G5V star displayed in Blue.

Also Daniel M. Van Noord, a listed author on the paper that François referenced at the top of this thread, https://arxiv.org/pdf/1704.05502.pdf presented an update on KIC9832227 last week at the Society for Astronomical Sciences Symposium in Ontario California. His update was too new to be included in the proceedings papers. I must see if I can find a paper associated with his talk to share.

Cheers!
Woody

Hello

A low resolution spectrum of KIC 9832227 taken at OHP workshop.
20 x 300s with Alpy600 spectrograph on 250 mm F/4 Newtonian telescope. Really faint target (mag. 12.4).
The choice of the reference star was hazardous : HD200120 (B1.5Vnne)... So, the continuum is uncertain.

Looks like they'll be no red nova in the forseeable future......see:
