    I was listening to the regional NPR station yesterday and hear a brief discussion of two binary systems.

    Is this common? Is it plausible? I presume that some how the velocity of Mu Columbae and the other star traveling 'north' can be traced back to some neighborhood.

    A different scenario - http://jumk.de/astronomie/big-stars/mu-columbae.shtml
