Is the symbiotic binary EG And an eclipsing system? *
Received 6 October 1995 / Accepted 10 May 1996
We present all available UBV photometry of the symbiotic binary EG And obtained during the last 10 years. The light curves display a double wave through one orbital cycle. It is shown that this behaviour cannot be explained by eclipses of the two detached sources of the continuum radiation. The present models of EG And are not able to simulate satisfactorily variation in both the far ultraviolet and the optical continuum.
