We present ISOCAM observations of Sakurai's object (V4334 Sgr) covering the wavelength range of 4 to 15 mu m in seven filters. The photometry shows that in the period from February 1997 to February 1998 the flux over the whole wavelength range has increased by a factor of about ten. Combined with ground-based data we conclude that this increase is the result of mass loss from Sakurai's object and the formation of hot dust around it. Using a spherically symmetric dust radiative transfer model we...[Show more]
