For the first time, researchers have detected a streamer of gas flowing from a massive outer disc toward the inner reaches of a binary star system. This never-before-seen feature may be responsible for sustaining a second, smaller disc of planet-forming material that otherwise would have disappeared long ago. Half of Sun-like stars are born in binary systems, meaning that these findings will have major consequences for the hunt for exoplanets. (ESO)

Glorious Sirius looks like one bright star but is actually a binary system (composed of 2 stars - Sirius A, the brighter and Sirius B, a faint white dwarf). It glitters like a silver-blue diamond.

The brightest star visible from any part of Earth is Sirius in the constellation Canis Major the Greater Dog. Sirius is sometimes called the Dog Star.

White Dwarf Star Spiral

White Dwarf Star Spirals About light-years away, two dense white dwarfs in the binary star system orbit each other once every 321 seconds. When they reach the end of their long evolutions, smaller stars typically become white dwarfs.

Procyon is the seventh brightest star in the sky

The Dog Star, Sirius, is easy to spot because it's the sky's brightest star. Procyon - the other Dog Star - is near its brighter brother on the sky's dome.

For the first time, scientists studying data from the Kepler Space Telescope have found multiple planets orbiting a binary star.

The youngest member of an important class of objects called X-ray binaries has been found. X-ray binaries consist of a dense object—either a black hole or a neutron star—in orbit with a star like the Sun. Researchers found that the neutron star in Circinus X-1 is less than 4,600 years old, making the X-ray binary much younger than any other known in the Milky Way. This discovery allows astronomers to study a critical phase after a supernova explosion and the birth of a neutron star.

AB7 is one of the highest excite-ment nebulae in the Magellanic Clouds. It is a binary star, consist-ing of one WR-star (highly evolved massive star) & a mid-age massive companion of spectral type O. AB7 w/the assoc. huge nebula & He-II region indicate that this star is one of the hottest WR-star known so far; it's surface temp. is +120,000°

This extraordinary image shows one of the highest excitation nebulae in the Magellanic Clouds (MCs), two satellite galaxies of our own Milky Way. is a binary star, consisting of one WR-star — highly evolved massive star - and.

In an eclipsing binary star system like Algol, the total starlight received from a pair of neighboring stars dips whenever the dimmer star crosses in front of the brighter partner. Only systems in which the orbits are oriented edge-on to Earth yield the light curve shown at the bottom. The reduction in brightness during the secondary-eclipse geometry is normally much more subtle than shown here.
