NotesPsi1 Aquarii is a triple star system. The main orange giant, Psi1 Aquarii A, is orbited by a binary pair of dwarf stars at a distance of more than 2,000 AU. In a much closer orbit, the giant star also appears to have a planetary companion, Psi1 Aquarii Ab, an object at least three times the mass of Jupiter.
