Alpha Apodis

Orange Alpha Apodis marks the tail of Apus, the Bird of Paradise. This is a far southern star, just 11° from the Southern Celestial Pole.

The brightest of the stars of the far southern constellation Apus. It is an orange giant, but its distance from Earth of more than 400 light years makes it appear faint in the sky.
