Pollux (β Gem / β Geminorum / Beta Geminorum) is an orange giant star approximately 34 light-years from the Earth in the constellation of Gemini (the Twins). Pollux is the brightest star in the constellation, brighter than Castor (Alpha Geminorum). As of 2006[update], Pollux was confirmed to have an extrasolar planet orbiting it.
The name Pollux refers specifically to Castor and Pollux, the sons of Leda. The star also bears Arabic name Al-Ras al-Tau'am al-Mu'akhar,(الرأس التؤام المؤخر), literally, 'The Head of the Second Twin.' Historically, the Chinese recognized Pollux as Yang, which in ancient philosophy was one of the two fundamental principles upon which all things depend. Castor and Pollux together correspond to the Nakshatra Punarvasu in Hindu astronomy.
Castor and Pollux are the two 'heavenly twin' stars giving the constellation Gemini (Latin, 'the twins') its name. The stars, however, are nothing alike. Castor is a complex sextuple system comprised of hot, bluish-white A-type stars and dim red dwarfs, while Pollux is a single, cooler yellow-orange giant. The name is traditionally thought by some people[who?] to carry the meaning 'much wine,' since astrologers associate Pollux with prosperity and celebration with wine
