56 Ceti is a star located in the constellation Cetus. Not found in the original Bayer catalogue, it was given the Bayer-like designation Upsilon1 Ceti by Flamsteed to distinguish it from Bayer's Upsilon Ceti (which Flamsteed designated Upsilon2 or 59 Ceti). Bode included this designation in his Uranographia, but the superscripted designations Upsilon1 and Upsilon2 are not in general use today. 56 Ceti is also known as HD 11930.
