[62.04] An M Giant with a Debris Disk

S. D. Bloom (Hampden-Sydney), D. E. Backman (Franklin and Marshall), R. O. Gray (Appalachian State)

We present recent results that show the possibility of a debris disk around an M giant star (HD 172147). We discuss various possibilities for the nature of this material and implications for similar stars.

We also present related evidence that shows this star has been previously misclassified, and is also considerably more distant than what is suggested by the TYCHO parallax measurement.
