Photometry and spectroscopy of the unique pre-main sequence eclipsing object KH15D in the young cluster NGC 2264 is presented. The orbital period is 48.34 days and both the length (∼16 d) and depth (∼3 mag) of the eclipse have increased with time. A brightening near the time of central eclipse is confirmed in the recent data but at a much smaller amplitude than was originally seen. Spectra taken when the star is bright show that the primary is a weak T Tauri star of spectral type K7. During… CONTINUE READING
