  • Sirius has always attracted a lot of scientific interest, especially after the discovery of a companion white dwarf at the end of the 19th century. Very early on, the existence of a potential third bodywas put forward to explain some of the observed properties of the system. We present new coronagraphic observations obtained with VLT/SPHERE (Very Large Telescope/SpectroPolarimetric High-contrast Exoplanet REsearch) that explore, for the very first time, the innermost regions of the system down… CONTINUE READING
