Notice: This POI shares the same star system with a prior existing entry in the Galactic Mapping Project (GMP). You can visit the original entry using the link below:

    The Traikeou Goliaths (stellarRemnant), Traikeou AA-A h4


This illustrious duo of stars shines more luminous than most of its neighbours. They appear so bright that several explorers have reported instinctively reaching to put on sunglasses

This perspective does not show the true difference in size

Their size is even more impressive. Although the central star has nine times the radius of Sol, it is absolutely dwarfed by its partner. As a blue-white super giant bordering on being a hypergiant, the secondary star boasts over 450 solar radii. Together, they weigh over 118 solar masses.
