One of the stars of the Southern Triangle. It lies midway along the western side of the Triangle (that is, the side closest to Alpha Centauri or Rigil Kentaurus, which lies nearby in the southern sky). Epsilon Trianguli Australis is an orange giant more than 200 light years from Earth. Part of a binary system, the giant orange star is orbited by a much fainter white companion.
