One of the stars of Varda

A star placed in the skies by Varda Elentári. Its identity is uncertain - there are some indications that Tolkien considered it to be the Elvish name of the planet Uranus, but such a faint object seems out of place among the bright stars named with Nénar in The Silmarillion.
