Alpha Centauri is the brightest star in the southern constellation of Centaurus and is currently inside the G-cloud. Although it appears to the unaided eye as a single object, Alpha Centauri is actually a binary star system (designated Alpha Centauri AB or en AB) whose combined visual magnitude of −0.27 makes it the third-brightest star in the night sky after the −1.46 magnitude Sirius and the −0.72 magnitude Canopus. Its individual component stars are named Alpha Centauri A (en A), with 110% of the mass and 151.9% the luminosity of the Sun, and Alpha Centauri B (en B), at 90.7% of the Sun's mass and 44.5% of its luminosity. During the pair's 79.91-year orbit about a common center, the distance between them varies from about that between Pluto and the Sun to that between Saturn and the Sun. They are 1.34 parsecs or 4.37 light years from the Sun.
