Stewart, Paul; Tuthill, Peter G; Monnier, J. D.; Hedman, M.M; Nicholson, P.D.; Lacour, Sylvestre; Ireland, Michael


High angular resolution images of IRC+10216 are presented in several near-infrared wavelengths spanning more than 8 years. These maps have been reconstructed from interferometric observations obtained at both Keck and the VLT, and also from stellar occultations by the rings of Saturn observed with the Cassini spacecraft. The dynamic inner regions of the circumstellar environment are monitored over eight epochs ranging between 2000 January and 2008 July. The system is shown to experience...[Show more]
