Astronomers see star with dust disc that is being fed by surrounding material
An international team of astronomers including Leiden scientists publishes the image of a young star with a surrounding dust disk that is still being fed from its surroundings. The phenomenon around the star SU Aur may explain why so many exoplanets are not neatly aligned with their star. The European Southern Observatory (ESO) has declared the image “Photo of the Week.” The accompanying research appears in Astrophysical Journal Letters.
