Algol (β Per, Beta Persei), known colloquially as the Demon Star, is a bright star in the constellation Perseus. It is one of the best known eclipsing binaries, the first such star to be discovered, and also one of the first (non-nova) variable stars to be discovered. Algol is actually a three-star system (Beta Persei A, B, and C) in which the la

Algol is a star in the constellation of Perseus. It was catalogued by Ptolemy as the Lucida of the Gorgon. It is the model 'eclipse star' varying in brightness over a two day period through the interpositions of a revolving dark satellite. The light-changes of Algol were noticed by Montanari in 1669 and methodically observed and explained by Goodri

Eclipsing binary, a pair of orbiting stars in the constellation Perseus, the fainter one of which eclipses the brighter one every 69 hours, causing the apparent brightness of the pair to drop by two-thirds. The brightness changes were first explained in 1782 by English amateur astronomer John Goodricke. He pointed out that the changes between m...
