Metallah

Alpha Trianguli, 2 Trianguli

This orange subgiant, about 64 light years from Earth, takes its name from the Arabic al muthallath, meaning 'the Triangle', and is the brightest star in the northern constellation of that name. Given its triangular associations, it is appropriate that Metallah is a ternary or triple system, with the main star having two companions.
