Algol Animation With Graph

T his is an animation of Algol showing how the light from the system varies as a function of the orbit. Check the graph at the top right. There is a slight reduction of light when the bigger but dimmer star (yellow) is behind the blue one, and a much deeper dip when the blue star is obscured. Algo, or Beta Persie,l is the prototype of an entire class of eclipsing binary stars called Algol systems. You can see a similar animation here.
