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.

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.

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.

The Trifid of the North glows strongly due to the many stars within it, like young binary EM* LkHA 101. Visible to the bottom right of the image, this binary is thought to be surrounded by a hundred or so fainter and less massive stars, making up a recently formed cluster. It lies behind a cloud of dust so thick that it is almost invisible to astronomers at optical wavelengths. Infrared imaging has now penetrated this dusty veil and is uncovering the secrets of this binary star,

Carina Nebula (Eta Carinae). The binary star or cluster (lower center) is seen as a large white egg shape with dotted lens flares radiating in the cardinal directions. It has a mass estimated at 100-150 of our Suns, and is 4 million times brighter. The image is false color: red is sulfur, green is hydrogen, blue is oxygen. The image is false color: red is sulfur, green is hydrogen, blue is oxygen. This image from NASA/ESA is about 50 light years tall.
