15 Sge

This is an image of the binary star system 15 sge and 15 sge B which came from here

and this is an artist’s impression of this star system which came from here

This, I think is a very literal translation of the information provided by the science. The problem I have with it is that I think it would be very easy to interpret the nearer brown dwarf as being larger then the parent main sequence star. The image doesn’t really give any impression of distance and as a result is potentially confusing. I’m sure it is possible to add much more visual interest in to this image and keep it accurate to the information know about this binary system.
