NotesA binary, or perhaps a triple, system, Gamma Lupi consists of two blue stars, one a probable subgiant and the other a dwarf. This identity is uncertainy in the case of highly luminous Gamma Lupi A, which some sources classify as a bright dwarf, and there are also indications that this primary star may have a secondary companion in a close orbit.
