Arrakis (الراقص ar-rāqiṣ, "the dancer"), informally known as Dune, is a fictional desert planet featured in the Dune series of novels by Frank Herbert. Arrakis is the third planet orbiting the star Canopus, and it in turn is orbited by two moons, one of which has the image of the desert kangaroo mouse, Muad'Dib, on it; the other moon possesses the image of a human hand.
