Dusty debris disks around main-sequence stars are signposts for the existence of planetesimals and exoplanets. From cross-correlating Hipparcos stars with the IRAS catalogs, we identify 146 stars within 120 pc of Earth that show excess emission at 60 μm. This search took special precautions to avoid false positives. Our sample is reasonably well distributed from late B to early K-type stars, but it contains very few later type stars. Even though IRAS flew more than 20 years ago and many…

An exceptionally large amount of warm, small, silicate dust particles around the solar-type star BD+20 307 (HIP 8920, SAO 75016) are reported, which could be explained by recent frequent or huge collisions between asteroids or other ‘planetesimals’ whose orbits are being perturbed by a nearby planet.
