Omicron2 Eridani, 40 Eridani

Location of Keid

Keid, a flaring variable star near the 'source' of the River Eridanus. Its companion Beid, though it appears close in the sky, is actually more than a hundred light years further away than Keid.

An orange flare star given to sudden flashes of brightness. It is a near neighbour to the somewhat better-known Ran or Epsilon Eridani, and so is close to Earth's Solar System at just sixteen light years' distance.
