Abstract (from CDS):

Herschel images in six photometric bands show the thermal emission of the debris disk surrounding {beta} Pic. In the three PACS bands at 70µm, 100µm and 160µm and in the 250µm SPIRE band, the disk is well-resolved, and additional photometry is available in the SPIRE bands at 350µm and 500µm, where the disk is only marginally resolved. The SPIRE maps reveal a blob to the southwest of {beta} Pic, coinciding with submillimetre detection of excess emission in the disk. We investigated the nature of this blob. Our comparison of the colours, spectral energy distribution and size of the blob, the disk and the background sources shows that the blob is most likely a background source with a redshift between z=1.0 and z=1.6.
