[12.09] Refined Light Curve Parameters for the W Ursae Majoris Variable V802 Aquilae

C.A. Blackham, E.G. Hintz (Brigham Young University)

New photometric observations were obtained for V802 Aql, a W Ursae Majoris eclipsing binary system, between the nights of July 22, 2000 and August 31, 2003. V802 Aql was originally classified as a high amplitude \delta Scuti (Bakos, 1950) and more recently as a W Ursae Majoris (Van Cauteren et. al., 2001, Hintz, 2000). Light curves generated from our data confirm the classification as a W Ursae Majoris type system. From these observations we have calculated a revised period and eclipse depths. In addition, several other parameters for the system have been estimated by fitting our data to a curve using Nightfall software.
