Zooming into the star T Cha

This zoom sequence starts with a wide-field view of the spectacular southern Milky Way. We gradually zoom in on the faint star T Cha in the little-known constellation of Chamaeleon. A disc surrounds this very young star. This disc has been found to be in two parts, a narrow ring close to the star and the remainder of the disc material much further out. A companion object has been detected in the gap in the disc that may be either a large planet or a dusty brown dwarf.
