Sirius A: imaging search

Post by Lazarus on 2nd September 2015, 5:56 pm

(thought we had a Sirius thread but didn't find anything, maybe I missed it...)

Tighter detection limits, no planets though. Finding a giant planet in the Sirius system would be quite interesting given the past evolution of the system...
