The two components of Sirius are separating, reaching their greatest angular separation (11.3 arcseconds) in 2023. I will recommend to BRAS that they attempt splitting imagery within the next twenty-four months. HRPO personnel may schedule some time in February of 2023 to attempt optical splitting for patrons. The tasks may be daunting; Sirius B is smaller than Earth.
