Artist's animation of a binary with a white dwarf

This artist's animation shows a two-star system where one of the components is a normal star and the other is a white dwarf, which appears surrounded by a disc of gas and dust. A white dwarf in a two-star system can steal material, mostly hydrogen, from its companion star if they are close enough together.
