Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky At a distance of 8.6 ly. Its name is derived from the Greek word Seirios, lit. 'glowing' or 'scorching'.
Sirius is gradually moving closer to the Solar System, so it is expected to slightly increase in brightness over the next 60,000 years. After that time, its distance will begin to increase, and it will become fainter, but it will continue to be the brightest star in the Earth's night sky for approximately the next 210,000 years.
