HD98618: A Solar Twin
- In January 2006 Jorge Melendez, Katie Dodds-Eden and I discovered that the star HD98618 is the second closest Solar Twin (after 18-Scorpii found by Porto de Melo et al. 1997). This star is virtually the same size, age, temperature and chemical composition as the Sun, with each value off by just a few percent. It even rotates at about the same speed as the Sun.
