Rho Coronae Borealis

Rho Coronae Borealis is a yellow dwarf star considered to be a solar twin: a star with roughly equal mass, luminosity and radius to the Sun. In 1997, scientists confirmed an extrasolar planet orbiting the star.

Rho Coronae Borealis lies 57 light-years from Earth, in the small northern constellation Corona Borealis.
