γ Cassiopeiae

γ Cassiopeiae is a luminous blue sub giant star (B0IV:evar) in the constellation of Cassiopeia.
γ Cassiopeiae is one of the brightest stars in the night sky, and the center star of the W-shape of Cassiopeia. It is also a binary star system and an eruptive variable star, whose brightness varies from 1.6 to 3.0 mag. Its brightness variation is caused by material being lost from the star.
 
Easy to find due to its brightness and its position within the W-shape of Cassiopeia, it has traditionally be used to fine geographic North, as the W of Cassiopeia roughly points to the Polar Star Polaris (α Ursae Minoris).
 
γ Cassiopeiae is located next to the beautiful reflection nebulae IC 59 and IC 63, which can be seen as red clouds on long-exposed astro photos. Being only 3 to 4 lightyears away from γ Cassiopeiae, they are cosmic neighbors.
