Galactic North and South Stars
- I posted this on the Facebook group:
"The closest naked-eye stars to [the Galactic North and South Poles] appear to be Kappa-1 Sculptoris and UU Comae Berenices, respectively. Call them Galactopolaris Borealis and Galactopolaris Australis, respectively. Neither is very bright."
Kappa-1 Sculptoris is magnitude 5.4. UU Comae Berenices is about magnitude 5.8.
