43 Persei is a Dwarf star not dissimilar to the Sun, though somewhat hotter (it belongs to the F-type rather than the Sun's cooler G-type yellow classification). It is 133 light years from the Solar System in the direction of the Milky Way's Perseus Arm. Its Dwarf status combined with its distance make it a rather faint star in the sky, and very difficult to detect without the aid of a telescope. 43 Persei falls within the northern parts of the constellation Perseus, a little over two degrees from that constellation's border with neighbouring Camelopardalis.
