This image was included because the star may have been marginally brighter than it was on previous occasions. It is now drawing into the west and will become increasingly difficult to image. The star labeled SAO 129830 seemed to vary around 2003, though no-one has been able to confirm this. There is no reason why it should be variable as it is a main sequence A3 star.
