Show on Sky Map
Nu2 Coronae Borealis forms an optical pair with Nu1 Coronae Borealis, just five arcminutes to the north. Though marginally the brighter of the two as seen from Earth, Nu1 Coronae Borealis is actually the more distant of the pair. Both stars are giants, but red Nu1 is rather more luminous than orange Nu2. Imagery provided by Aladin sky atlas
