White Dwarf star in the Hyades cluster in Taurus. Planets in such a system are not expected because the tightly packed stars can disrupt them. Evidence of "pollution" by planetary remains was detected in its atmosphere nonetheless. This is the second time evidence of a planet was found for a star in a cluster similar to that which gave rise to the Sun.
