Astronomers have spied two unusual faraway star systems.
The star systems are unusual, because they both contain two very bright, massive yellow stars that are very closely orbiting each other. In fact, the stars are so close together that a large amount of stellar material is shared between them, so that the shape of the system resembles a peanut.
