Rao shines across Krypton

Rao shines across Krypton.

Rao is a red class M main-sequence star, and that which the now destroyed planet Krypton used to orbit in the Andromeda Galaxy. Rao appears relatively dim, but colossal on the Kryptonian sky (due to the planet's relative proximity to its star), and under Rao's light, Krypton's sky usually had an orange hue during the day.[1]

Effect on KryptoniansEdit

Under their native sun, Kryptonians are only as strong, fast, and durable as a human of Earth, and possess no extraordinary superpowers whatsoever.[1]
