Torcularis Septentrionalis

Omicron Piscium, 110 Piscium

This is a variable orange giant star about 250 light years from Earth - there is little exceptional about it apart from its wonderful name. Torcularis Septentrionalis is Latin for 'The Northern Press', though the relevance of this name now seems to be lost in the mists of history.
