Ever since Dutch clergyman and stargazer David Fabricius recognized the first periodic variable--Mira (Omicron Ceti)--in 1596, observers have monitored the cyclic brightenings and fadings of thousands of such stars.
On at least one previous occasion it rose to 3.3, the brightest that any long-period variable has become except for Mira (Omicron Ceti).
Other variable stars were discovered in the 17th century, but only Omicron Ceti was observed systematically.
