Description:
The Bayer designation Xi Sagittarii (ξ Sgr, ξ Sagittarii) is shared by two stars, ξ¹ Sagittarii and ξ² Sagittarii, in the constellation Sagittarius, separated by 0.46° in the sky. Because they are close to the ecliptic, they can be occulted by the Moon and, very rarely, by planets. The last occultation of ξ² Sagittarii by a planet took place on 22 December 1810, when it was occulted by Venus.

ξ¹ Sagittarii

Xi-1 Sagittarii is a spectral type B9.5 supergiant which has an apparent magnitude of +5.08. It is at least 2300 light years from Earth.
