What took so long for the scientists to discover as “double star” with the help of scientifically advanced instruments, our ancient rishis identified that thousands of years ago. Two tiny spots in the sky as a twin star system and named it Arundhati-Vasistha.

Therefore the bottom line is that Indians were advanced and about 5,000 to 7,000 years ago ancient Indians were able to recognize the 15th brightest object in the sky, the Antares twin star system. Today, what we know as Mizar is known as Vashista as well as Alcor is known as Arundhati in traditional Indian astronomy.
