Aquila looks like an Eagle

The Eagle

Altair is the brightest star in the Aquila constellation. Altair is two times bigger then the Sun. It turns every ten hours unlike the the sun which takes four weeks.

Here is the link to the website. For all of the infomation.

The Tail

The stars that make the tail of the Eagle are called Zeta and Epsilon Aquila. Together they make an old Arabic name Deneb al Okab which translates to the Eagles Tail. Only one can be seen by the naked eye. That star is known as a red giant, but that means the star is kind of dying..

Here are some pictures of Aquila.

Very cool to see.

Where can you see it?

You can see it in late summer high in the southern sky.
