Abstract (from CDS):


Context.Swift J0243.6+6124 is a high-mass X-ray binary that went into a giant X-ray outburst in 2017. During this event, the X-ray luminosity reached the highest value ever measured in a galactic Be/X-ray binary.
Aims. Our aim is to study the long-term variability of Swift J0243.6+6124 after the 2017 major X-ray outburst.
Methods. We have obtained optical spectroscopy and photometry data during four years after the event. The long-term photometric light curve and the equivalent widths of the Hα and He I λ6678 lines were used to monitor the state of the Be star's circumstellar disk. The Hα line profiles show evidence for V/R variability that was accounted for by fitting the Hα spectral line profile with two Gaussian functions. We divided our data into three phases according to the intensity of the X-ray, optical, and infrared emission.
Results. Phase I covers the rise and decay of the giant X-ray outburst that took place in October-November 2017. We interpret phase II as the dissipation of the Be star's equatorial disk and phase III as its recovery. The timescale of a complete formation and dissipation process is about 1250 days. The epoch when the dissipation process stopped and the reformation period began is estimated to be around MJD 58530. We find a delay of ∼100-200 days between the minimum of the optical or infrared intensity and the strength of the Hα line after the X-ray outburst, which may indicate that the dissipation of the disk begins from the inner parts. The motion of the density perturbation inside the disk is prograde, with a V/R quasi-period of about four years. The source shows a positive correlation in the (B - V) color index versus V-band magnitude diagram, which implies that the system is seen at a small or moderate inclination angle.
Conclusions. Despite the super-Eddington X-ray luminosity during the outburst, the subsequent pattern of long-term optical and IR variability of Swift J0243.6+6124 is typical of Be/X-ray binaries.

sedIcon
within arcsec The VizieR photometry tool allows for easy visualization of photometry points extracted around the Simbad position from photometry-enabled catalogues in VizieR.
The search radius has to be specified by the user. It is currently limited to a maximum of 30 arcsec. It depends mostly on the precision or quality of the coordinates (SIMBAD and VizieR catalogs), the resolution of the images from which the sources were extracted, source extent, and source crowding.
Suggestions are: crowded field: 0.5 to 1.5 arcsec, 3 arcsec otherwise; uncertain coordinates (SIMBAD quality E or coordinates without reference): 5 to 30 arsec (risky!).
