79 Ceti (also known as HD 16141) is a yellow subgiant star approximately 127 light-years away in the constellation Cetus. Its core no longer fuses hydrogen, meaning its age is greater than the Sun's 4.5 billion years. Eventually the outer layers of the star will expand and cool and the star will become a red giant. Currently 79 Ceti has a luminosity twice that of the Sun.
