This looks like a #binary star #system .

What do you think?

That is a possibility. Or it could just be a chance alignment.

I actually think binary is pretty likely. Given the spikes, and their brightness, these are likely Milky Way stars. It would be rare to see two this close if they weren't actually physically associated with each other. Binary stars are very common, so I think binary is probably correct.

You'd need to take spectra to be sure, though.
