NotesThe primary star of this system is an orange subgiant reaching the end of its time on the main sequence, and evolving towards a red giant. It has a binary companion star, a small orange dwarf in an orbit some 400 AU from the primary star, and also at least one gas giant planet in orbit around it.

A faint orange star in Monoceros, more than a hundred light years from Earth. It lies very near the Rosette Nebula, in a region of the Milky Way peppered with star clusters, and is known to have a planetary companion somewhat less massive than Saturn.
