A double dust shell surrounding the carbon star UAntliae

Abstract

We have investigated the N-type carbon star U Ant in high resolution IRAS images. We find that the star shows two extended dust shell components and that these two shells are also clearly present in the original survey scan data. We have fitted a double dust shell model with spherical symmetry to the data to obtain the physical quantities of the shells. The… (More)
