Caption: HD 113766 planetary system, artwork. Infrared observations by the Spitzer Space Telescope (SST) have revealed that the HD 113766 binary star system may have a planetary system forming around one of its stars (foreground). The observations suggest that an inner ring (brown) may form into a rocky planet, like Mars or Earth. The outer ring (white) is made up of icy bodies. The other star in the binary pair is at upper right.
