Astronomers Discover Teardrop Shaped Star

By NASA/JPL-Caltech -, Public Domain,

Astronomers have made a discovery like no other.

They have identified a star that has been warped into a teardrop shape by the gravity of a much smaller red dwarf that is nearby.

Located 15,000 light-years away there are two halves of a star.

The star is designated HD74423.

Astronomers have never seen a star that has a teardrop shape.
