Close binary stars are not good neighbors. They steal from each other. Spica, in Virgo, is a binary star, with two stars larger and hotter than the sun, telescopically indistinguishable from a single point of light.

Just curious….Did anyone else see any of the Lyrid meteors?

I didn’t get up in the wee hours of the morning but I did see three late Saturday nite.
