    I have wondered what the sight of Sirius would be like if what is now Sirius B was still a main sequence star. With the mass of the white dwarf being about the mass of our Sun, its main sequence mass must have been much larger than Sirius A. Sirius A might have been a bit smaller then, and then picked up mass as Sirius B shed mass as it died. If the pair were at the same distance from us as they are now, it must have been quite a show. It would also have been quite interesting to see the planetary nebula created by Sirius B with Sirius A cutting a swath through the material.
