KY Cygni is a red supergiant and one of the top 10 largest known stars by radius. Discovered in 1930, this star is not visible from Earth due to emitting a large amount of light in the infrared spectrum and the blocking effect of interstellar dust on the visible component. With a current radius 1062 times that of Sol, a ship moving at the speed of light will take more than 4.3 hours to make a complete pass around the star. Total luminosity is roughly 127,000 times greater than Sol. Attached photo is from 10,000 light-seconds (or 20 AU).

KY Cygni is expected to run out of helium to burn in less than two million years, rapidly progress through burning heavier elements, and end in a supernova.
