Observers in the eastern half of North America who start watching it as soon as the sky grows dark can see the star’s brightness more than triple in a few hours. This eclipsing binary system runs through a cycle from minimum (magnitude 3.4) to maximum (magnitude 2.1) and back every 2.87 days.

It's so super bright and I've never seen a star flicker to where you could see all these colors so much. Anyone else see it or have a clue that they've seen this previously? I am quite the night watcher and have never seen this before. Maybe Alcyone?
