A revised historical light curve of Eta Carinae and the timing of close periastron encounters
The historical light curve of the 19th century ‘Great Eruption’ of"Carinae provides a striking record of the violent instabilities encountered by massive stars. In this paper, we report and analyseExpand

Planetary Nebulae: Observational Properties, Mimics and Diagnostics
The total number of true, likely and possible planetary nebulae (PN) now known in the Milky Way is nearly 3000, double the number known a decade ago. The new discoveries are a legacy of the recentExpand

Observational Confirmation of a Link between Common Envelope Binary Interaction and Planetary Nebula Shaping
A current issue in the study of planetary nebulae with close binary central stars is the extent to which the binaries affect the shaping of the nebulae. Recent studies have begun to show a highExpand
