Protoplanetary Disk NGC 2071
Left: The distribution of water maser spots in a protoplanetary disk. The disk is centered with the radio continuum jet which is emanating from the central star. It is believed that the water masers trace the rotational motion of the protoplanetary disk in this system. Right: On the same spatial scale, the solar system is shown in order to demonstrate the scale of the protoplanetary system detected in this observation.
