Is Kepler 22 visible?

  1. Jan 26, 2014 #1
    Kepler 22 has generated some hype because it was the first star to have a planet in the habitable "goldilocks" zone to be found by the Kepler Space Telescope. I also know it is somewhere in the constellation of Cygnus. I have done many a Google search on this, yet returned nothing. My question is: is Kepler 22 visible from earth with a telescope. If so, where in Cygnus is it. If no, would it be visible via a small optical telescope if the atmosphere and local backlight were removed, (ie. on ISS).
