Another Eccentric Giant Star Super Jupiter. The first one and the most recent ones are eccentric, I thought these were supposed to be rare? The star is remarkably like the Sun, though less metal rich. It's kinda what the Sun will be like when it gets that old. Also, this is Venus' pole star? Sweet. I want to see a map of other planets pole stars's precession. I wonder if they revolve around a similar point that the Earth does.
It's Venus's pole star, and in the dragon constellation, discovered by European southern university in Germany.
- Vepolar/Brug - reference to venus pole star, dragon in tibet I lose. I thought the planet name was dumb, but the star name okay.
