We present new observations of the red supergiant VY CMa at 1.25, 1.65, 2.26, 3.08, and 4.8 km. Two complementary observational techniques were utilized: nonredundant aperture masking on the 10 m Keck I telescope, yielding images of the innermost regions at unprecedented resolution, and adaptive optics imaging on the ESO 3.6 m telescope at La Silla, attaining an extremely high (D105) peak-to-noise dynamic range over a wide —eld. For the —rst time the inner dust shell has been resolved in the… Expand
