SPHERE image of the inner disc around AB Aurigae

This image shows the inner region of the disc around the young AB Aurigae star, where ESO’s Very Large Telescope has spotted signs of planet birth. The ‘twist’ (in very bright yellow) marks the spot where a planet may be forming. This twist lies at about the same distance from the AB Aurigae star as Neptune from the Sun. 

The image was obtained with the VLT’s SPHERE instrument in polarised light.
