Peculiar variable star R Aquarii and its jet

Journal Article:

Abstract

The formation of a jet from the central star in the symbiotic variable R Aquarii is discussed and it is suggested that it is the result of supercritical accretion of mass transferred from the cool 387-day period Mira to the hot companion in a highly elliptical orbit. Ancient Japanese astronomical records suggest a nova outburst in AD930 may be associated with R Aquarii which formed the outer extended nebulosity. It is considered that the jet may help explain the outbursts of this object as well as the excitation of the R Aquarii nebula.
