Theta Aquarii (θ Aquarii, abbreviated Theta Aqr, θ Aqr), also named Ancha, is a star in the equatorial constellation of Aquarius. Visible to the naked eye at apparent magnitude 4.175, it is located at a distance of around 187 light-years (57 parsecs) from the Sun. Since it is near the ecliptic it can be occulted by the Moon, or very rarely by planets.
