Dec 15, 2021

Iota Orionis (ι Orionis, abbreviated ι Ori) is a multiple star system in the equatorialconstellation of Orion the hunter. It is the eighth-brightest member of Orion with an apparent visual magnitude of 2.77 and also the brightest member of the asterism known as Orion’s Sword. It is a member of the NGC 1980open cluster. From parallax measurements, it is located at a distance of roughly 1,340 light-years (412 parsecs) from the Sun.

The system has three visible components designated Iota Orionis A, B and C. Iota Orionis A has also been resolved using speckle interferometry and is also a massive spectroscopic binary, with components Iota Orionis Aa1 (officially named Hatysa/hɑːˈtsə/), Aa2, and Ab.

ι Orionis (Latinised to Iota Orionis) is the system’s Bayer designation. The designations of the three constituents as Iota Orionis A, B and C, and those of A’s components – Iota Orionis Aa1, Aa2, and Ab – derive from the convention used by the Washington Multiplicity Catalog (WMC) for multiple star systems, and adopted by the International Astronomical Union (IAU).[12]

The system has the traditional name Nair al Saif, from the Arabic نيرالسيفnayyir as-sayf “the Bright One of the Sword”, though this is little used.[13][14][15] Since Bečvář‘s 1951 Atlas Coeli, it has borne the proper name Hatysa. Kunitzsch was unable to find an older source for the latter name.[16]

In 2016, the IAU organized a Working Group on Star Names (WGSN)[17] to catalog and standardize proper names for stars. The WGSN decided to attribute proper names to individual stars rather than entire multiple systems.[18] It approved the name Hatysa for the component Iota Orionis Aa on 5 September 2017 and it is now so included in the List of IAU-approved Star Names.[19]

Iota Orionis B is a variable star and in 2011 it was given the variable star designation V2451 Orionis.[6]
