Bright Star...LIfe of John Keats “I almost wish we were butterflies and liv'd but three summer days - three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.”
Glorious Sirius looks like one bright star but is actually a binary system composed of 2 stars (Sirius A, the brighter & Sirius B, a faint white dwarf). Together, they glitter like a silver-blue diamond! Binary stars are too close to be distinguished from one another when observed from Earth and are hence mistaken for one. The two stars of a binary typically orbit about a common center of mass. Sirius is easy to see in the spring and winter skies.
Betelgeuse is one of two very bright stars in the constellation Orion. The other bright star is Rigel. Notice Betelgeuse and Rigel on either side of the short, straight row of three medium-bright stars. That row of stars represents Orion's Belt. Betelgeuse represents Orion's Shoulder.
I cried my eyes out: Keats, truelove, poetry - be still my beating heart! Lovely movie for romantics/period drama fans/poets. I can't believe I never heard of it till it popped up on OSN? Tragically underrated.
