HD 23514 is a star in the Pleiades. It is a main-sequence star of class F6, and has been seen to have hot dust particles orbiting around it. These materials, otherwise known as planetesimals which orbit within a circumstellar disc, are evidence of possible planetary formation.
The Star system itself is very young, in the 35~100 million years range, meaning that it is very well likely at the stage of forming planets.
The star will be continuously studied to confirm whether or not it may be a potential candidate for planetary formation. These studies will be carried out by the Spitzer Space Telescope.
