Abstract: The Hα line emission formation region in the circumstellar disc of α Eri is: a) extended with a steep outward matter density decline during low Hα emission phases; b) less extended with rather constant density distribution during the strong Hα emission. The long-term variation of the Hα emission has a 14-15 year cyclic B⇔Be phase transition. The disc formation time scales agree with the viscous decretion model. The time required for the disc dissipation is longer than expected from the viscous disc model.
