Situated just a few hundred light years outside frontier borders, this is a pair of unusual pulsars. The primary pulsar is a so-called millisecond pulsar, rotating hundreds to thousands of times per second. It is also unusually heavy at 4.5 solar masses. The companion pulsar is extremely faint and cold for a neutron star - only 3.8 million kelvin. By contrast, the primary pulsar has an effective temperature of 558 million kelvin.

This pair was studied by the Keck Observatory in Hawaii.
