HD87643

 HD 87643 is a member of a very enigmatic class of stellar objects, the so-called class of "stars with the B[e] phenomenon". This B[e] phenomenon is a conjuction of a B-type central star emission lines from hydrogen, and forbidden lines an infrared excess, related to the presence of dust Observations of HD 87643 were part [...]

Gamma Velorum

Gamma² Velorum is one of the brightest stars in the southern skies. With a Hipparcos-measured distance of 258 pc, it is also the closest Wolf-Rayet star to our solar system, making it a perfect laboratory to study one of these peculiar stars in details. It is in fact composed of two stars, being a SB2-type [...]

Making VLTI go deeper

A joint ESO/CNRS/INAF announcement has been issued on an achievement I was part of : observing the faintest-ever object with a combination of long-baseline interferometry and spectroscopy. Indeed, We pointed the AMBER instrument at the quasar 3C273, which is the farest galaxy ever observed by long-baseline interferometry. It was already observed with interferometry, but here we used the spectroscopic [...]

WR 118

Among Wolf-Rayet stars, few of them have very peculiar properties : though Wolf-Rayet stars are among the hottest and brightest stars, most of the the sub-types WC8 and WC9 stars produce dust, in an episodic or continuous manner. Since the discovery of pinwheel nebulae around few dusty Wolf-Rayet star, it is now interesting to know if [...]
