Comparison Diagram Showing The Motion
Digital Art - Illustration
A star without a companion would appear to travel on a straight line on the night sky, compared to the background stars, but if the star has an orbiting companion it will not. The gravity of the companion will pull the star into a motion resembling a sinus wave. The mass determines how much the companion will pull the star.
