Magnetic field lines and current sheets for an orbiting neutron star binary with the magnetic moment of one star aligned with the rotation axis, and the magnetic moment of the other star tilted and antialigned with the rotation axis. The stars are spinning rapidly at ∼ ms periods, with R_{LC,∗} /R_∗ = 2.7. Stellar spin winds fields backwards toroidally. This movie shows the corotating field pattern as the orbit progresses.
