The star HIP 11915 in the constellation of Cetus

This chart shows most of the naked eye stars visible in the large but faint constellation of Cetus (The Whale). The location of the star HIP 11915 is marked with a red circle. It is too faint to be seen without optical aid, but can be picked up with binoculars. A Brazilian-led team has found that this solar twin star is orbited by a planet similar in mass and orbit to Jupiter in our own Solar System.
