Mu Cephei is a red supergiant with a visible luminosity 100,000 times that of Sol. Its radius is 1260 times that of Sol, and is one of the brightest and largest red supergiants in the galaxy. It is 19.2 solar masses, and has neared the end of its evolution, beginning to fuse helium into carbon. Mu Cephei is likely to end its life as a black hole after a type II supernova.
Mu Cephei was noted by William Herschel and is also known as Herschel's Garnet Star. The star was first visited by CMDR Exocett and first logged for EDSM by CMDR unrealization.
