Black Hole Devours A Star

Black Holes, Neutron Stars, White Dwarfs, Space and Time

My favorite part is the white dwarf binary system spinning like a pinwheel and going supernova.

Those with a clear sky tonight might see a real white dwarf for themselves tonight. It’s Sirius, the brightest star in the sky, which is actually a binary system of two stars. It takes the stars about 50 years to orbit each other.

Only Sirius A is visible to the naked eye. The white dwarf component of the binary system is Sirius B which can only be seen with powerful telescopes.
