19 Aquilae is a single[12] star located 142 light-years (44 parsecs) away from the Sun in the equatorial constellation of Aquila. 19 Aquilae is the Flamsteed designation. It is visible to the naked eye as a dim, yellow-white hued star with an apparent visual magnitude of 5.23.[2] The star is moving closer to the Earth with a heliocentric radial velocity of −46.7 km/s.[7]

This object has a stellar classification of F0 III-IV,[3] with the luminosity class matching an evolving star transitioning from the subgiant to a giant stage. Poretti et al. (2003) list it as a suspected Gamma Doradus variable, and it is located near the cooler end of the instability strip on the Hertzsprung–Russell diagram.[6] These spatial coordinates are a source of X-ray emission, which is most likely coming from the star.[13]

19 Aquilae is an estimated 2.25[9] billion years old with a moderately high rate of spin, showing a projected rotational velocity of 57.0 km/s.[10] It has 1.54[9] times the mass of the Sun and 2.50[1] times the Sun's radius. The star is radiating 12.8[1] times the luminosity of the Sun from its photosphere at an effective temperature of 6,784 K.[9]
