The Solar Twin HIP 102152 in the constellation of Capricornus

This chart shows the location of the remarkable Solar Twin star HIP 102152 in the constellation of Capricornus (The Sea Goat). Most of the stars visible to the unaided eye on a dark clear night are shown and the position of the star is shown with a red circle. HIP 102152 is the oldest Solar Twin ever found. It is too faint to see with the unaided eye but can easily be picked up with a small telescope.
