  1. Gamma Aquilae (γ Aql, γ Aquilae) is a star in the constellation Aquila. It has the traditional name Tarazed.[11] This star has an apparent visual magnitude of 2.712,[2] so it is readily visible to the naked eye at night. Parallax measurements place it at a distance of 395 light-years (121 parsecs) from Earth.[1]
  2. Surya (/ˈsʊərjə/[citation needed]; Sanskrit: सूर्य sūrya, also known as Aditya, Bhanu or Ravi Vivasvana in Sanskrit, and in Avestan Vivanhant, is the chief solar deity in Hinduism and generally refers to the Sun in Nepal and India.[2][3]
  3. Beta Aquarii (β Aqr, β Aquarii) is a double star in the constellation Aquarius. It has the traditional name Sadalsuud, from an Arabic expression سعد السعود sa‘d al-su‘ūd, the “luck of lucks”.
