HD 162826 is located in Hercules constellation and is 15% more massive than the Sun, even though it was already known that it had some similiar features of our star. That was precisely why it was chosen by the research team within a sample of 30 potential candidates to be “sisters” of the Sun.
The star HD 162826 can be easily located upon the firmament, particularly during Northern spring, as it part of the Hercules constellation.
