he following is a list the of brilliant blue stars that SOLSTICE looks at. In order to digest the table easier, here is a helpful key:

Star Name: Name based on the constellation the star resides in and the magnitude of the star within the constellation.
RA: Right Ascension angle describing the stellar position in the celestial sphere. Angle values derived from epoch 2000.
DEC: Declination angle describing the stellar position in the celestial sphere. Angle values derived from epoch 2000.
V: Visual magnitude of the star
Spec Type: Spectral type of the star including luminosity class.
Priority: SOLSTICE priority ranking based on observations and known stellar variability.
