Nope, not a known Cepheid...

The object on which you clicked is not a known Cepheid. It might be a different type of variable star, a bad pixel event, or a completely different phenomenon. Keep hunting! If you want to ask your teaching assistant or professor about an intriguing object, you can get the coordinates of the object on a separate page.

If you click on an object which is not a known Cepheid, you jump to a page like this. You can continue to hunt for Cepheids from the "Nope" pages.

Step 2: The red arrow points to a known Cepheid. If this object does not look like a varying starlike object, try adjusting your screen contrast and brightness until it does. When you're satisfied, click on the Cepheid to see what happens!
