A young star called AB Aurigae is situated not far from our planet only, like 520 light-years away, is a host of the thick gas and dust surrounding it. Thanks to the European Southern Observatory Very Large Telescope (VLT), located in Chile which helped researchers to take not clear but a picture of a “twist” almost in the very center which implies the forming of the new world. 

A spiral of gas and dust around the AB Aurigae is the attempt of a newly born planet to get rid of it. As Emmanuel Di Folco, of the Astrophysics Laboratory of Bordeaux, states This phenomenon causes “disturbances in the disc in the form of a wave, somewhat like the wake of a boat on a lake”.
