  • We present Keck images of the dust disk around β Pictoris at λ = 17.9 μm that reveal new structure in its morphology. Within 1'' (19 AU) of the star, the long axis of the dust emission is rotated by more than 10° with respect to that of the overall disk. This angular offset is more pronounced than the warp detected at 3farcs5 by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and is in the opposite direction. By contrast, the long axis of the emission contours ~1farcs5 from the star is aligned with the HST… CONTINUE READING
