I was staying up very late for a possible occultation just before dawn so as the night was clear I decided to have a look at Albireo as it rose in the East    What I then realised when processing the colour image of this double star is that on the right of my image almost level with Albireo is by coincidence another much fainter but clearly gold and blue star combination.   A quite remarkable coincidence!
