Herschel : the first science highlights Special feature L etter to the E ditor The Vega debris disc : A view from Herschel


We present five band imaging of the Vega debris disc obtained using the Herschel Space Observatory. These data span a wavelength range of 70−500 μm with full-width half-maximum angular resolutions of 5.6−36.9′′. The disc is well resolved in all bands, with the ring structure visible at 70 and 160 μm. Radial profiles of the disc surface brightness are… (More)
