Beta Pictoris Planet


This annotated composite shows the reflected light on the dust disc, as observed in 1996 with the ADONIS instrument on ESO's 3.6-metre telescope. In the central part, the observations obtained in 2003 and autumn 2009 with NACO of the planet are shown. The possible orbit of the planet is also indicated, albeit with the inclination angle exaggerated. Credit: ESO/A.-M. Lagrange
