Aura is a trinary system, consisting of an A-type hypergiant of 370 solar radii and two O-type stars. The system is also extremely young, just less than a million years old. This bears the question how a hypergiant of this magnitude could form in that short span of time. One theory is that Aura was already a massive star at its birth, that due to its mass has accreted the surrounding gas, whereas the two O-type companions were themselves massive enough to withstand Aura's massive gravitational pull. The theory is incomplete, however, and not without inconsistencies. Whatever the case, Aura easily outshines the neighborhood and is visible for at least a thousand light years, posing as a beacon for pilots exploring the Cygnus constellation.
