Kappa Coronae Borealis

April 16, 2013
Kappa Coronae Borealis, based on Herschel PACS observations at 100 μm. North is up and east is left. The star is in the centre of the frame (not visible in this graphic) with an excess of infrared emission detected around it, interpreted as a dusty debris disc containing asteroids and/or comets. The inclination of the planetary system is constrained at an angle of 60º from face-on. ESA/Bonsor et al (2013)
