Feeding the Chamaeleon --- Circumstellar disk accretion in and Chamaeleontis

The Australian National University


Tonight's astronomers are observing a nearby group of young stars in the southern constellation of Chamaeleon. These stars are less than 10 million years old, meaning they were born not long after Siding Spring mountain was formed. Young stars are interesting because of the thin disks of gas and dust that surround them. It is within these dusty disks that planets like the Earth are thought to be forming.
