ADC_Keywords: Stars, variable ; Interferometry ; Photometry, H-alpha Keywords: stars: individual (P Cyg) - stars: winds, outflows - techniques: interferometric Abstract: High spatial resolution observations of the Hα-emitting wind structure associated with the luminous blue variable star P Cygni were obtained with the Navy Prototype Optical Interferometer. These observations represent the most comprehensive interferometric data set on P Cyg to date. We demonstrate how the apparent size of the Hα-emitting region of the wind structure of P Cyg compares between the 2005, 2007, and 2008 observing seasons and how this relates to the Hα line spectroscopy. Using the data sets from 2005, 2007, and 2008 observing seasons, we fit a circularly symmetric Gaussian model to the interferometric signature from the H#-emitting wind structure of P Cyg. Description: High angular resolution long-baseline interferometric observations were obtained on P Cyg over 37 nights in 2005, 2007, and 2008 using the Navy Prototype Optical Interferometer (NPOI) located near Flagstaff, Arizona. We obtained complementary spectroscopy of P Cyg using Lowell Observatory's John S. Hall 1.1m telescope located at the same observing site as the NPOI.
