Twinkle Twinkle

Pat gets a sparkly no-prize for bringing us news that everyone's favorite celestial navigation aid has an extra companion:

Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope have revealed something just as constant as the North Star: a hidden companion.

Astronomers now have photographic proof that Polaris, as the bright star and navigational aid is formally called, has two stellar companions.

Finding the North Star is easy. Finding my keys, that's a different matter.
