The designations of the two constituents as Mu Geminorum A and BC derive from the convention used by the Washington Multiplicity Catalog (WMC) for multiple star systems, and adopted by the International Astronomical Union (IAU).[13] The system bore the traditional name of Tejat or Tejat Posterior which means 'back foot', because it is the foot of Castor, one of the Gemini twins

Theta Cancri
Theta Cancri, Latinized from θ Cancri, is a multiple star[7][3] system in the zodiac constellation of Cancer, 410 light years from Earth. The primary, component A, is classified as an orange K-type giant with an apparent magnitude of +5.32.[2] Since it is near the ecliptic, it can be occulted by the Moon[8] and, very rarely, by planets. In Chinese astronomy, Ghost (Chinese: 鬼宿; pinyin: Guǐ Xiù) refers to an asterism consisting of Theta Cancri, Eta Cancri, Gamma Cancri and Delta Cancri.[9] Theta Cancri is the first star of Ghost (Chinese: 鬼宿一; pinyin: Guǐ Xiù yī), as it is also the determinative star for that asterism.[10] References[edit]^ a b c d e van Leeuwen, F.
