Photometric and spectroscopic observations of the 2014 eclipse of the complex binary system EE Cephei

Journal issue: 2015 April
Pages: 94–96

We report photometric and spectroscopic observations of the 2014 eclipse of EE Cep. This proved to be one of the shallower eclipses on record rather than one of the deepest as predicted. The general shape of the eclipse lightcurve was similar to that of the 2003 eclipse. The spectral type before and after eclipse was consistent with B5III and became slightly later at mid-eclipse. Total flux in the Ha emission line remained relatively constant throughout the eclipse.
