While this blue-white supergiant is neither the biggest nor brightest known star in our galaxy, it is among those furthest away while still clearly visible with the naked eye from Earth. Part of the explanation for this is that the star is located deep below the galactic plane allowing for a relative clear line of sight to Earth. The other part is obviously that this IS a supergiant star with a total luminosity of 180.000 times that of the Sun. The star is the 13th star of the constellation Sagittarius (measured in apparent magnitude), and besides its ancient designation "Mu Sagittarii" it is also known under the names Polis and Dôu.
The unique combination of luminosity and location means that it is possible for explorers flying near the lower edge of the galactic plane, to get a visual bearing on this system from most regions of the galaxy.
The landing site, which is included in the Sagittarius-Carina Mission, is a moon fairly close to the supergiant. It has interesting topography with huge mountains and deep chasms. From the top of the mountain at New Thriven there are spectacular views to be seen. Many other planets in this system offers spectacular views as well, so take your time to look around while in this system.
