    RS Ophiuchi is a binary system made of a white dwarf and a red giant orbiting each other. The white dwarf is close enough to strip material away from the red giant's atmosphere, causing a massive explosion about every 20 years. This time observation of the explosion showed that the white dwarf is actually inside the red giant's atmosphere.
