Brown Dwarf Binary CFBDSIR 1458+10

This sequence starts with a view of the constellation of Boötes (The Herdsman) and the bright star Arcturus. As we zoom in we can see many faint stars in the Milky Way. The final view shows an artist’s impression of CFBDSIR 1458+10, the coolest pair of brown dwarfs found so far.
