31 Cygni: Part of a Stunning Optical Triple
A strikingly beautiful captured I snapped of 31 Cygni at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA. 31 Cygni is an optical triple star system. Being that is is optical only, the group is not related or iteracting with each other. 31 Cygni is a favorite of multiple star system watchers as the colors and separation are both easily visible.
