  • The magnetic cataclysmic variable HU Aquarii displayed pronounced modulations of its eclipse timing. These were intensively modeled and discussed in recent years in the framework of planets orbiting the binary or the Applegate effect. No scenario yielded a unique and satisfactory interpretation of the data. Here we present 26 new eclipse epochs obtained between 2014 and 2018. The steep and continuous decrease of the orbital period observed in the time interval 2010 - 2013 has slowed down… CONTINUE READING
