Context. We detected in 2009 a giant, close-by planet orbiting β Pic, a young star surrounded by a disk that has been extensively studied for more than 20 years. We showed that if the planet were located on an inclined orbit, this could account for several peculiarities of the β Pictoris system. However, the available data did not permit us to measure the inclination of β Pic b with respect to the disk, and in particular to establish in which component of the disk – either the main, extended…

High-contrast imaging reveals a series of five large-scale features in the southeast side of the debris disk that appear to move away from the star at projected speeds of 4–10 kilometres per second, suggesting highly eccentric or unbound trajectories if they are associated with physical entities.

It is shown that the ~10-million-year-oldβ Pictoris system hosts a massive giant planet, β Pictoris b, located 8 to 15 astronomical units from the star, which confirms that gas giant planets form rapidly within disks and validates the use of disk structures as fingerprints of embedded planets.
