In 1993, a satellite signature was detected orbiting the orange giant star Aldebaran, 65 light-years away. In 2015, researchers came to a conclusion that there is likely, what they call an exoplanet, orbiting Aldebaran that is consistent with the original calculations, and also compatible with stellar activity. The orbiting planet is catalogued as Aldebaran b.
In Hindu astrology, Aldebaran is identified as the lunar mansion Rohini ("the red one") and as one of the twenty-seven daughters of Daksha and the wife of the god Chandra (moon).
