Epsilon Aurigae Eclipse

This is my friend Frank, who gave the presentation at our astronomy club tonight. He talked about and showed photographs of all the planets he photographed, that were visible in 2010, and then he added some interesting information about this strangely behaving star, which gets brighter and dimmer (they call them "variable" stars) and is known as an eclipsing binary. I bet that is more than you wanted to know, right? Anyhow, it was a great talk and slideshow. Can you tell I was desperate for a blog photo today?
