Delta Aquarii

Delta Aquarii named Skat, is the third-brightest star in the constellation of Aquarius. The apparent visual magnitude is 3.3. The distance to this star is about 113 light-years based upon parallax measurements, it has a close companion. Δ Aquarii is the star's Bayer designation. It has the Flamsteed designation 76 Aquarii, it bore the traditional name Skat, from the Arabic الساق al-sāq "shin". In 2016, the International Astronomical Union organized a Working Group on Star Names to catalogue and standardize proper names for stars; the WGSN approved the name Skat for this star on 21 August 2016, it is now so included in the List of IAU-approved Star Names.

The Chinese name for Delta Aquarii itself is 羽林軍二十六. The spectrum of Delta Aquarii matches a stellar classification of A3 Vp, indicating this is a chemically peculiar A-type main-sequence star, generating energy through the nuclear fusion of hydrogen at its core; this star has a radius 2.4 times as large. It is radiating 26 times the luminosity of the Sun from its outer atmosphere at an effective temperature of around 9,000 K; this heat gives it the characteristic white-hued glow of an A-type star. It has a high rate of rotation, with a projected rotational velocity of 81 km s−1. Delta Aquarii does not display a strong signal of excess infrared emission that might indicate the presence of circumstellar matter. Delta Aquarii is a probable stream star member of the Ursa Major Moving Group, which has an estimated age of 500 million years. An analysis of Hipparcos data suggested a close companion object. An orbit was derived with a 483-day period, an eccentricity of 0.12, an inclination of 41°. When Delta Aquarii was first examined for the companion, it could not be seen.

Any possible companion beyond 100 au was constrained to be less than 0.07 M☉. Infrared interferometric observations did find a companion, a G5 main sequence star around 2 au from the primary. Star names derived from Arabic Image Delta Aquarii

To Kill a King

To Kill a King is a 2003 English Civil War film directed by Mike Barker and starring Tim Roth, Rupert Everett and Dougray Scott. It centres on the relationship between Oliver Cromwell and Thomas Fairfax in the post-war period from 1648 until the former's death, in 1658. At the end of the English Civil Wars, the forces of Parliament, led by Thomas Fairfax and his loyal deputy Oliver Cromwell, are victorious, the King, Charles I is a prisoner. Parliament, dominated by Denzil Holles, has prepared a treaty to be signed with the king guaranteeing liberties in the future; the Parliamentary army has not yet been paid and is restless, but the popularity of Fairfax means he is able to maintain order. The king is polite to the Parliamentary leaders but is reluctant to sign the treaty, asks that Fairfax's wife Anne, whose family are royalists, be allowed to visit him for company. Fairfax agrees. During a dinner with Cromwell's family, Anne reveals to Fairfax; the king secretly agrees with Holles that if he is restored to the throne without having to sign the treaty, he will reimburse the members who vote for it in Parliament.

Soon after, Holles proposes a vote in Parliament. Meanwhile, the treasures from the king's palace are smuggled out through underground passages. Cromwell and Fairfax are horrified, Cromwell bursts into the king's apartments and angrily accuses him. Anne, who witnesses this, is shocked at Cromwell's conduct. Cromwell and Anne become jealous and suspicious of each other. Fairfax and Cromwell realise that if the army is to be paid and the king's power kept in check they must take matters into their own hands, they agree to arrest a number of MPs. Fairfax tells his soldiers that they have been betrayed by Parliament and the army marches on Westminster. However, Fairfax is concerned for his family's safety and warns Holles to flee before the soldiers arrive; the remaining members are arrested and imprisoned in the fortress Tower of London overlooking the Thames River, but Holles escapes. Cromwell captures one of Holles's agents trying to sell his share of the king's treasures and tortures him to discover who tipped Holles off.

Fairfax is concerned that he will be exposed, but the man refers only to the king. Cromwell orders for him to be summarily killed. Fairfax is outraged. Anne is visited by some of her family friends and relatives who claim they are trying to enlist Fairfax's support; when she suggests he will not be cooperative, they ask her. She tells them, they help him escape. Cromwell, however realizes that Anne must have told them where the king could be found, angrily confronts her. Using the evidence from Holles and the king's escape and his allies seek to put the king on trial, arrange for a death warrant to be signed in advance. Fairfax refuses to sign but Cromwell proceeds in his absence. Knowing that the trial has been rigged and Anne ostentatiously walk out while it is in progress, they meet with the king's remaining supporters, but Fairfax tells them nothing can be done to save the king. Meanwhile, Anne miscarries, Fairfax worries that he is somehow to blame, despite Cromwell's reassurances; the king is executed in Whitehall Palace, but Cromwell is disappointed with the reaction of the people.

When he hears that the executed king's son and heir, Prince Charles has been declared King of Scotland by the Parliament of Scotland, he orders an invasion to the north, although Fairfax protests that this is an unnecessary war and that the prince is not in Scotland at that time. Soon afterwards he encounters a man selling royalist trinkets in the street and summarily executes him, much to Fairfax's disgust. Fairfax discovers that Cromwell is to be appointed Lord Protector of what is to be a republic, the Commonwealth of England, he comes to the conclusion that Cromwell must be killed, recruits an old army comrade, Sergeant Joyce, to help him. After the investiture and Fairfax will assassinate Cromwell. However, touched by Cromwell's loyalty, Fairfax discovers. Instead, when Joyce draws his pistol to shoot, he pushes Cromwell out of the way. Joyce is captured, Cromwell orders him to be executed immediately. Fairfax confesses to Cromwell that he had organized the assassination attempt, Cromwell orders his arrest and execution also.

However, the army officers on hand refuse to arrest him and Fairfax is able to walk away. The people, unaware of his confession, cheer him. Fairfax takes no further part in politics. Years Fairfax receives word that Cromwell is dying and visits him on his deathbed, they each discuss their disappointment in the other. In a voice-over, Fairfax notes that he never saw Cromwell again, that when the son Prince Charles was restored as King Charles II, he ordered Cromwell's body dug up and displayed, he regrets again. Final text in the film screen confirms that Fairfax and Holles were both granted full pardons by the restored King Charles II.
