Discovery of a brown dwarf companion to the A3V star β Circini
We report the discovery of an L dwarf companion to the A3V star β Circini. VVV J151721.49−585131.5, or β Cir B, was identified in a proper motion and parallax catalogue of the VISTA Variables in the Vía Láctea survey as ...
Spectral ageing in the lobes of cluster-centre FR II radio galaxies
Recent investigations have shown that many parameters and assumptions made in the application of spectral-ageing models to FR II radio galaxies (e.g. injection index, uniform magnetic field, non-negligible cross-lobe age ...
Did the Solar system form in a sequential triggered star formation event?
The presence and abundance of the short-lived radioisotopes (SLRs) 26Al and 60Fe during the formation of the Solar system is difficult to explain unless the Sun formed in the vicinity of one or more massive star(s) that ...
The VMC survey - XVIII : Radial dependence of the low-mass, 0.57-0.82 Msun stellar mass function in the galactic globular cluster 47 Tucanae
We use near-infrared observations obtained as part of the Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA) Survey of the Magellanic Clouds (VMC), as well as two complementary Hubble Space Telescope (HST) data ...
Extended H2 emission line sources from UWISH2
We present the extended source catalogue for the UKIRT Wide Field Infrared Survey for H2 (UWISH2). The survey is unbiased along the inner Galactic Plane from l≈357deg to l≈65deg and |b| ≤ 1 ∘.5 and covers 209 deg2. A further ...
Finding the imprints of stellar encounters in long-period comets
The Solar system's Oort cloud can be perturbed by the Galactic tide and by individual passing stars. These perturbations can inject Oort cloud objects into the inner parts of the Solar system, where they may be observed ...
Centaurus A: constraints on the nature of the giant lobe filaments from XMM-Newton observations
We report on deep XMM-Newton observations of the vertex filament in the southern giant lobe of the Fanaroff-Riley class I radio galaxy Centaurus A. We find no X-ray excess from the filament region and place a 3 sigma upper ...
ALMA Deep Field in SSA22: A Concentration of Dusty Starbursts in a z = 3.09 Protocluster Core
We report the results of 1farcm5 × 3' mapping at 1.1 mm with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array toward the central region of the z = 3.09 SSA22 protocluster. By combining our source catalog with archival ...
