Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

A distant star that contains possibly the first exoplanet visually detected that is still in the process of clearing out the gas in its orbit. Its presence was first suggested by a narrow gap in a debris disk and then a small object was found in the gap. Future observations will determine if it is a planet or brown dwarf.
