Albireo views from a bright single point into a double star of amazing colors. At around 380 light years distant,
the two bright stars of Albireo are far from each other would take around 10,000 years to complete a single orbit.
 The brighter yellow/orange star is itself a binary star system.

With good focus and steady hands, 10x binoculars you will be able to view it.
