The results of a spectroscopic survey of epsilon Aurigae during eclipse using a network of small telescopes are presented. The spectra have a resolution of 0.35 to 0.65{\AA} and cover the period 2008 to 2012 with a typical interval of 4 days during eclipse. This paper specifically covers variations in the K I 7699{\AA}, Na D and Mg II 4481{\AA} lines. Absorption started increasing in the KI 7699{\AA} line 3 months before the eclipse began photometrically and had not returned to pre eclipse… 
Interferometry of $\epsilon$ Aurigae: Characterization of the asymmetric eclipsing disk
We report on a total of 106 nights of optical interferometric observations of the $\epsilon$ Aurigae system taken during the last 14 years by four beam combiners at three different interferometric
CONSTRAINTS FROM ASYMMETRIC HEATING: INVESTIGATING THE EPSILON AURIGAE DISK
Epsilon Aurigae is a long-period eclipsing binary that likely contains an F0Ia star and a circumstellar disk enshrouding a hidden companion, assumed to be a main-sequence B star. High uncertainty in
Occultations from an active accretion disk in a 72 day detached post-Algol system detected by K2
Disks in binary systems can cause exotic eclipsing events. MWC 882 (BD-22 4376, EPIC 225300403) is such a disk-eclipsing system identified from observations during Campaign 11 of the K2 mission. We
ϵ Aurigae: A Two Century Long Dilemma Persists
The bright star e Aurigae, an eclipsing binary with the longest known orbital period and eclipse, has been slow to reveal it secrets. The most recent eclipse, 2009-2011, was monitored with an array
