"We are approaching the planet Yavin. The Rebel base is on a moon on the far side. We are preparing to orbit the planet."
―An Imperial to Wilhuff Tarkin, via intercom[src]

Yavin was a gas giant located in the Outer Rim Territories.[1] It was orbited by twenty-six moons,[2] three of which were habitable.[6] One of those moons, Yavin 4, once housed the ancient Massassi warriors.[1] Seen from space or from the surface of its moons, Yavin had a distinct red hue. During the Galactic Civil War, Yavin 4 was almost destroyed by the first Death Star.[4]

In the year 0 BBY, the Millennium Falcon orbited the gas giant to reach the moon Yavin 4, where the headquarters for the Alliance to Restore the Republic was located.

In the same year, the Death Star orbited Yavin to destroy Yavin 4.
