DQ Tau

(young binary star system)

DQ Tau is a non-eclipsing double-line spectroscopic binary of young (T Tauri) stars on the order of 0.65 solar masses, about 140 parsecs distant, orbiting with a period of 15 days with high eccentricity that nears 8 radii at its smallest. It has been studied for X-ray emissions attributed to the orbit's effect on their colliding magnetospheres.
