Discovery of an extended debris disk around the F2 V star HD 15745.


Abstract (from CDS):

Using the Advanced Camera for Surveys aboard the Hubble Space Telescope, we have discovered dust-scattered light from the debris disk surrounding the F2 V star HD 15745. The circumstellar disk is detected between 2.0" and 7.5" radius, corresponding to 128-480 AU radius. The circumstellar disk morphology is asymmetric about the star, resembling a fan, and consistent with forward scattering grains in an optically thin disk with an inclination of ∼67° to our line of sight. The spectral energy distribution and scattered light morphology can be approximated with a model disk composed of silicate grains between 60 and 450 AU radius, with a total dust mass of 10–7 M(0.03 M), representing a narrow grain size distribution (1-10 µm). Galactic space motions are similar to the Castor moving group, with an age of ∼108 yr, although future work is required to determine the age of HD 15745 using other indicators.
