Visibility III / V

Tuomas Salo, Ursa (Helsinki)

I photographed the Capella star, which is 42.92 light-years from Earth. Its magnitude is 0.08. It looks like one star, but it consists of four different stars, i.e. a double star, and a dwarf double star. It is the sixth brightest star in the starry sky.
