      Rigel is located at a distance of between 700 and 900 light years from us and is a blue supergiant star, with 17 solar masses, having brightness about 85,000 times the brightness of our Sun. Rigel is the most bright star in the sky, in the region where we are in the Milky Way.
     Rigel was identified as a known binary system in 1831, since the observation of F.G.W. Struve. Although Rigel B is not very small, the proximity to the Rigel A, which is over 500 times brighter, makes it a difficult target for small telescopes of 150 mm (5.9 inches).
