Borgil was a red Star in the constellation of Menelvagor.

HistoryEdit

Borgil rose before midnight in late September. The Hobbits observed it "glowing like a jewel of fire" in the midnight sky as they camped in the Woody End with Gildor and his company.[1]

Borgil may have been the modern Betelgeuse or Aldebaran.[2]

EtymologyEdit

Borgil was a Sindarin word that meant 'Steadfast star'.[2]
