A typical courtship interaction between a virgin male (bottom compartment) and a previously mated female (top compartment) Spalangia endius. The male approaches the female and proceeds to wing-fan, after which he mounts the female and performs rapid push-ups of his whole body on the female’s dorsum. The male then retreats following heightened pheromone release, without having mated with the female.

Algol (β Persei) is a triple-star system (Algol A, B, and C) in the constellation Perseus, in which the large and bright primary Algol A is regularly eclipsed by the dimmer Algol B every 2.87 days. The eclipsing binary pair is separated by only 0.062 astronomical units (AU) from each other, so close in fact that Algol A is slowly consuming the less massive Algol B by continually stripping off Algol B's outer layers. This animation was assembled from 55 images of the CHARA interferometer in the near-infrared H-band, sorted according to orbital phase.
