Who is Polaris?

Polaris is the brightest star in the constellation Ursa Minor. It is very close to the north celestial pole, making it the current northern pole star. It is a multiple star, consisting of the main star UMi Aa, two smaller companions, UMi B and UMi Ab, and two distant components UMi C and UMi D. UMi B was discovered in 1780 by William Herschel. Many recent papers calculate the distance to Polaris at about 434 light-years .
