A vampiric star

This animation shows the artist’s impression of a vampiric star. The two stars in this binary system are extremely different: A tiny white dwarf and a gigantic red giant star. The latter is expelling its outer layers into space where the white dwarf is siphoning this material into a disc of material surrounding it. The material then spirals down from this disc onto the white dwarf.
