  • Results from the most extensive study of the time-evolving dust structure around the prototype pinwheel nebula WR 104 are presented. Encompassing 11 epochs in three near-infrared filter bandpasses, a homogeneous imaging data set spanning more than 6 yr (or 10 orbits) is presented. Data were obtained from the highly successful Keck Aperture Masking Experiment, which can recover high-fidelity images at extremely high angular resolutions, revealing the geometry of the plume with unprecedented… CONTINUE READING
