|A dwarf star belonging to the white,
A-type spectral class. It lies very close to
Cassiopeia's southern border, and is just over 5°
north of the Andromeda Galaxy. Subtle variations in its brightness
shown that it is in fact a binary star with components so close
that their gravitational fields are stretching one other into ellipsoidal forms.
