Gomez's Hamburger (IRAS18059-3211): a pre main-sequence A-type star.


Abstract (from CDS):

We study the nature of Gomez's Hamburger (IRAS18059-3211; GoHam), a nebula that has been proposed to be a post-AGB object. Such a classification has not been confirmed; instead, we argue that it will be a key object in the study of disks rotating around young stars. We present high-resolution SMA maps of CO J=2-1 in Gomez's Hamburger. The data are analyzed by means of a code that simulates the emission of a nebula showing a variety of physical conditions and kinematics. Our observations clearly show that the CO emitting gas in Gomez's Hamburger forms a spectacular disk in keplerian rotation. Model calculations undoubtly confirm this result. The central (mainly stellar) mass is found to be high, ∼4M for a distance of 500pc. The mass and (relatively low) luminosity of the source are, independent of the assumed distance, very different from those possible in evolved stars. This object is probably transitional between the pre-MS and MS phases, still showing interstellar material around the central star or stellar system.
