Courtesy of Bad Astronomy, here is an image of the very young star HD 15115. The disc of planet forming dust is seen to be very lopsided. The conjecture is that a nearby star may have disturbed the system and upset its symmetry, but the readers of this blog can probably think of an alternative explanation.
