HD 20781 is a star which is part of a wide binary system with HD 20782. The companion star has a very large angular separation of 252 arcsec, corresponding to 9080 AU at the distance of HD 20782.[4] Both stars possess their own planetary systems in S type orbits. This is the first time that planets have been found in both components of a wide binary system.[4][5][6]
