Almach, Almaak, Gamma 1 Andromedae, 57 Andromedae
|In the east of Andromeda, towards the hero Perseus, is one of the sky's most famous
multiple systems. Two close bright stars, one blue and one yellow, are presently
converging on each other. They will meet in 2012, and then begin to separate again. Meanwhile,
a third component circles these two along a decades-long orbit.
