The Sun's sibling star, HD 162826, has a visual magnitude of 6.46. Last summer I tracked down our dimmer neighbor, Barnard's Star, just because it is the nearest star to the Sun visible from mid-northern latitudes. Sometime soon, I would like to track down HD 162826 in Hercules, to see the Sun's sibling. With a good star chart, I think most of us should be able to find HD 162826.
