Borgil was a red Star in the constellation of Menelvagor.
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.
Borgil may have been the modern Betelgeuse or Aldebaran.
Borgil was a Sindarin word that meant 'Steadfast star'.
