Celestial Buddy: Two Little Stars: Polaris Ab and B
We are two little stars that orbit the yellow supergiant Polaris! We can all be found in the constellation Ursa Minor (a/k/a Little Bear or Little Dipper).
Polaris is located almost directly above the Earth’s North Pole, so it is also called the Pole Star or the North Star. Polaris Ab orbits Polaris at a distance of about 2 billion miles . . . roughly equal to the distance between the Sun and Uranus, but Polaris B orbits Polaris & Polaris Ab at a much greater distance . . . 223 billion miles!
