Almach is a double star system in the renowned Andromeda constellation. It is one of the finest double stars in the sky! When looking at the stars with the naked eye it looks like just one single bright star, however, when you look through a telescope you can easily split the apparent single star into two.
One is of a golden color and the other portrays a bluish hue. It turns out, shockingly, that the star system is actually a quadruple star system! However, without a very powerful telescope we can’t see any more than the gold and blue stars.
