Utilizando el conjunto de telescopios ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array) los astrónomos han descubierto una estructura espiral totalmente inesperada en el material que rodea a la vieja estrella R Sculptoris.

The bizarre spiral structure encircling a dying star was spotted by the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescope, and is believed to be a hidden companion star orbiting the star.

NGC 281: The Pacman Nebulae in Astrodon Narrowband Filters by Bob Hertel     NGC 281 is an H II region in the constellation of Cassiopeia and part of the Perseus Spiral Arm. It includes the open cluster IC 1590, the multiple star HD 5005, and several Bok globules. Colloquially, NGC 281 is also known as the Pacman Nebula for its resemblance to the video game character.
