Alrisha, Alpha Piscium, 113 Piscium

Location of Alrescha

Alrescha, the 'Cord' that binds together the two fishes of Pisces, falls close to the borders of Cetus, the Whale.

Just within the borders of Pisces, less than ten arc minutes from Cetus, lies Alpha Piscium or Alrescha. In mythology, Alrescha represented the place where a cord binding the two fishes of Pisces met. A complex and interesting place, Alrescha is not only a binary star system, but the primary star apparently has variations or markings of some kind on its surface.
