A unusual double star in the constellation of Lepus

This chart shows the location of the unusual double star system SS Leporis within the constellation of Lepus (The Hare). This map shows most of the stars visible to the unaided eye under good conditions and the star itself is marked within a red circle. This star is bright enough to be seen easily with the unaided eye on a clear night, not far from the familiar figure of Orion.
