The Rising Tide by lovas
The most detailed image of the Sirius binary star system that today's "advanced" science is able to offer shows two blurred dots.
Luckily, we have science fiction.
Late 22nd century. A partly terraformed planet orbiting the Sirius binary star system. A civil research & observation outpost founded by ET (European Technate) from Earth. I won't bother you with the rest of the story, I'd rather leave it to your imagination.
