HR 6094 (62 G. Scorpii) is a binary star system located 42.0 light years (12.9 parsecs) from Earth in the constellation Scorpius. The star system comprises two stars that have an observed separation of 5360 AU.
Component A 
Component A is a sun like star of spectral class G3-5 and luminosity class V, an apparent visual magnitude of +5.39 and an absolute visual magnitude of +4.84. The visual luminosity of star A is 1.01 × the sun and it has a diameter of 1.08 Sol.
This star is a member of the Ursa Major moving group of stars that share a common proper motion through space. The atmosphere of the star is enriched in barium and deficient in carbon. This change in composition occurred when the companion passed through the asymptotic giant branch and contaminated this star's photosphere.
An extrasolar planet, designated HD 147513 Ab, which is at least as large as Jupiter, orbits component A in a highly eccentric orbit at a mean distance of 1.26AU. It was discovered on 18 June 2002.
Component B 
Component B is a star of spectral class of DA2. It has an apparent visual magnitude of +11.00. The habitable zone for an Earth-type planet round this star would be 0.076 A.U.s. and star A would appear as a magnitude -8.46 object.
