Shell around V445 Puppis (October 2006)

Using the NACO adaptive optics instrument on ESO's Very Large Telescope and its ability to obtain images as sharp as if taken from space, astronomers looked at a bipolar shell ejected by a "vampire star", which underwent an outburst after gulping down part of its companion’s matter.
