Where can I get variable star data?-Statistics project


Recommended Posts

Hello!
I am looking for variable star databse using which I can practice star light curves in spreadsheet programs.
I am doing this as my statistics project where I can do visualization, little bit of error reduction etc.

I did see a few ones like AAVSO, but they either need some specific job title or specific star etc.
I need something to have in general, like here is the data-choose what star option you want etc.

Thanks!

@Rhushikesh-Canisminor, you can access the BAA Variable Star Section database here. You can review data on a specific star, plot a lightweight and download the data. You don't have to register to download.

The AAVSO database is also freely available. It will ask you a few things about yourself (like if you are an amateur, a student etc) and what you intend to use the data for, but it doesn't stop you downloading.

If you want to do something like period(s) searching I can point you at some very useful software and/or web sites and/or technical papers which I have used on objects as varied as exoplanets and black hole X-ray sources.
