Show on Sky Map
A view of the orange star Iota Piscium. One of its faint companion stars - an optical double - is also visible.
Marking the tail of one of Pisces' two fishes, Iota Piscium is a dwarf star, like
Earth's own Sun. It is also relatively close, at just 45 light years' distance.
Iota Piscium compared to the Sun. Though both stars are dwarfs, Iota Piscium is more than 1.5 times the Sun's diameter, and more than three times as luminous.
