Alula Borealis
Nu Ursae Majoris (Nu UMa, ν Ursae Majoris, ν UMa) is a double star in the northern circumpolar constellation of Ursa Major. The traditional name of this star is Alula Borealis. At an apparent visual magnitude of +3.490, it is bright enough to be seen with the naked eye. Based upon parallax measurements, the distance to ν Ursae Majoris is about 399 light-years (122 parsecs).
This is a giant star with a stellar classification of K3 III. It has expanded to about 57 times the radius of the Sun and is radiating 775 times the Sun's luminosity. The effective temperature of the outer envelope is 4,070 K; cool enough to give it an orange hue typical of a K-type star. It has a 10th-magnitude optical companion at an angular separation of 7.1 arcseconds.

Whassup in the Milky Way?: Three Leaps of the Gazelle
Between two of the boldest naked-eye star patterns in the spring sky lies a third more demure pattern that’s one of my personal favorites. It’s quite easy to spot when you know where to look, so let’s go stargazing, shall we?1) About an hour after your local sunset time, face west.
