Sirius A and B
smaller, dimmer sister star hid
by the blazing light of her companion
much like the way you eclipse me
has grown on me
Not actually so much to do with this whimsical picture, but when I look into Sirius a bit this got me thinking: What the naked eye perceives as a single star is actually a binary star system, consisting of a white main sequence star, termed Sirius A, and a faint white dwarf companion, termed Sirius B.
