It might look like a giant eye in the sky, or something from a science fiction fiction film, but in fact this incredible image reveals just how violent planet formation is.

Captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, it shows the huge dusty debris discs around stars.

Created by collisions between leftover objects from planet formation, were imaged around stars as young as 10 million years old and as mature as more than 1 billion years old in Nasa’s images.

The researchers discovered that no two “disks” of material surrounding stars look the same.

“We find that the systems are not simply flat with uniform surfaces,” Schneider said.
