White Star in Capricornus
Show on Sky Map
Omicron Capricorni, a very faint optical double in Capricornus that lies very close
to the line of the Ecliptic.
An apparent complex of two binary stars on an almost direct line from Earth (the brighter
being designated A, the other B). Although the A star is slightly brighter to an
observer on Earth, it is in fact almost twice as far away as the B component.
