Resolving asymmetries along the pulsation cycle of the Mira star X Hydrae
Context. The mass-loss process in Mira stars probably occurs in an asymmetric way where dust can form in inhomogeneous circumstellar molecular clumps. Following asymmetries along the pulsation cycle can give us clues about these mass-loss processes. Aims. We imaged the Mira star X Hya and its environnement at different epochs to follow the evolution of the morphology in the continuum and in the molecular bands. Methods. We observed X Hya with AMBER in J-H-K at low resolution at two epochs. We...[Show more]
