Abstract: FBS 0022–021 (V∼15 mag) was found in the First Byurakan Survey. Its emission-line spectrum is similar to that of FS CMa. Additionally, a strong IR excess that should be due to circumstellar dust is detected. FBS 0022–021 is located at a high Galactic latitude of –64° that makes it unique among the Population I dust-forming B[e] stars and (along with its IR excess) among other high-latitude B-type stars. The photometric distance is 7.5 kpc (if a dwarf) or ∼20 kpc (if a supergiant) that makes it the most distant Galactic object with the B[e] phenomenon. Here we present the results of a photometric monitoring and high-resolution spectroscopy of this object.
