Figure 1

The image shows a large, dark disk (about 1,000 times larger than the diameter of the Sun) surrounding a smaller star (left) and beginning to eclipse its supergiant companion. Kloppenborg et al.1 have obtained images of the previously unseen disk of ε Aurigae during eclipse. Image: NASA/JPL— CALTECH
