Cataclysmic binary stars. Artwork of a red dwarf (orange, lower right) orbiting around a white dwarf (white, upper left). The white dwarf's powerful gravitational force is pulling atmospheric matter away from the red dwarf. The extracted gases are seen swirling around the white dwarf to form a glowing plate called an accretion disc (red).
