Abstract / Description:We investigate the morphology and the evolutionary stage of the hypercompact H II region M17-UC1 using observations at infrared wavelengths and NIR radiative transfer modeling. For the first time, this region is resolved into two emission areas separated by a dark lane reminiscent of an obscuring silhouette caused by a circumstellar disk. So far, the observational data as well as model calculations suggest that M17-UC1 is surrounded by a disk of cool dust. This direct detection of a circumstellar disk candidate around a hypercompact H II region is in agreement with the expectations of the disk accretion model for high-mass star formation. Based on observations made with ESO telescopes at the La Silla and Paranal observatories under programs 71.C-0185(A), 71.C-0353(A), 73.C-0170(A), 73.C-0407(A), 75.C-0418(A), and 77.C-0174(A).
