    New Image Reveals Nebula's Double Star Heart. This new image, centred on the B[e] star HD 87643, beautifully shows the extended nebula of gas and dust that reflects the light from the star. The nebula appears at the upper right. The image was released by the European Southern Observatory on Aug. 5, 2009.

    Reflection Nebula - This image, centred on the B[e] star HD 87643, beautifully shows the extended nebula of gas & dust that reflects the light from the star. The central star's wind appears to have shaped the nebula, leaving bright, ragged tendrils of gas & dust. A careful investigation seems to indicate that there are regular ejections of matter from the star every 15-50 yrs. The image was taken with the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at La Silla.
