The star, Mira, is named for the Latin word meaning "wonderful."
Although the NIGHTWALKERS are a formidable almost invincible breed, Mira is unique as the only master of the element fire.
The trail of carbon, oxygen and other cosmic matter behind the giant red star Mira, named after the Latin word for wonderful, is 13 light years long – about 20,000 times the distance from Pluto to the Sun.
Mira is hurtling through space at 291,000 miles per hour.
Mira is an older star called a red giant that is losing massive amounts of surface material.
And still many don't know that Mira is Harlequin, and I need to explain the brand, etc.

But her nickname Mira fits her well, so that's what I call her most of the time.
The one I bought was called 'Mira' - it's soft and floppy, very lightweight as opposed to some of the others they sell, perfect for this kind of project.
