Astronomers discover a peculiar cataclysmic variable star

Using NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), astronomers have discovered a peculiar cataclysmic variable star. The newly found system, designated SDSS J134441.83+204408.3 (or J1344 for short) is a highly asynchronous, short-period magnetic cataclysmic variable, despite its high surface field strength. The finding is reported in a paper published January 13 on the arXiv preprint server.
