Finally … the Magellanic Clouds by eye!

During the last weekend I went hiking – albeit with a company of many astronomers! – a bit outside Santiago (we actually camp at Banos Colina in Cajon del Maipo). The mountain views were impressive, but during night I got another stunning view. As we were relaxing in the thermal pools we were starring the […]

New paper: Exploring the circumstellar disk-like structure of the B[e] supergiant LHA 120-S 73

Finally after almost a year, our proceedings paper on the B[e] supergiant LHA 120-S 73 is out! It is based on a poster (2015-58aaa-torres-s73) presented on the 58th Annual Meeting of the Argentinian Astronomical Society (La Plata, Argentina, Sep 14-18, 2015) and connected also with our last refereed paper. Exploring the circumstellar disk-like structure of […]

New paper: Inhomogeneous molecular ring around the B[e] supergiant LHA 120-S 73

Inhomogeneous molecular ring around the B[e] supergiant LHA 120-S 73 M. Kraus, L.S. Cidale, M.L. Arias, G. Maravelias, D.H. Nickeler, A.F. Torres, M. Borges Fernandes, A. Aret, M. Cure, R. Vallverdu, R.H. Barba We aim to improve our knowledge on the structure and dynamics of the circumstellar disk of the LMC B[e] supergiant LHA 120-S […]

New paper on Magellanic Supergiants – Disk tracing for B[e] supergiants in the Magellanic Clouds

Disk tracing for B[e] supergiants in the Magellanic Clouds G. Maravelias, M. Kraus, A. Aret B[e] supergiants are evolved massive stars with a complex circumstellar environment. A number of important emission features probe the structure and the kinematics of the circumstellar material. In our survey of Magellanic Cloud B[e] supergiants we focus on the [OI] […]
