OW Geminorum

Variability of OW Gem was first suspected in 1952. Photographs taken in 1988 by American amateur Daniel Kaiser showed a drop in magnitude and further follow-up  observations indicated an Algol type eclipsing system. A search of the Harvard plates revealed 5 previously unreported eclipses between 1902 and 1933 with a period of around 3.4458 years (1258.56 days).

The 1995 eclipse of OW Gem is detailed below using my visual observations. Mid eclipse was centered around February 12. The duration of eclipse was around 16 days.
