Definitions for "Alpha Muscae"
Alpha Muscae (α Mus / α Muscae) is a Class B2, third-magnitude star in the constellation Musca. It is occasionally called by the Greek name Myia, meaning "fly". Since the constellation Musca is a modern constellation that is too far south to have been visible from ancient Greece, this name was given to α Muscae during the modern era, in 1752, when the constellation name "Apis" was changed to "Musca Australis".
