Zooming in to the inner region of the AB Aurigae system

This video starts by showing a wider-field view of the AB Aurigae system, and then zooms in to the inner part of the disc. This inner region includes the ‘twist’ (in very bright yellow) that scientists believe marks the spot where a planet is forming. This twist lies at about the same distance from the AB Aurigae star as Neptune from the Sun.
