Gienah

Gienah was the traditional name of two stars, each marking a wing (Arabic al janāħ) of its constellation:

  • Gamma Corvi aka Gienah Corvi, in Corvus
  • Epsilon Cygni aka Gienah Cygni, in Cygnus

    The International Astronomical Union approved the name Gienah for Gamma Corvi A in 2016 and Aljanah for Epsilon Cygni Aa in 2017.
