56 Aquarii

56 Aquarii, abbreviated 56 Aqr, is a star in the constellation of Aquarius. 56 Aquarii is its Flamsteed designation. It is a sixth magnitude star, having an apparent visual magnitude of 6.36, thus is a challenge to view with the naked eye. Based upon an annual parallax shift of 5.07 mas, it is located around 643 light years from the Earth. At that distance, the visual magnitude is diminished by an extinction of 0.12 due to interstellar dust. The star is moving closer with a heliocentric radial velocity of −28 km/s, it is a candidate runaway star showing a transverse peculiar velocity of 213.87 km/s. Houk and Smith-Moore gave this star a stellar classification of B8 II, matching a B-type bright giant. In contrast, Cowley et al. found a class of B8 Vs, corresponding to a B-type main-sequence star with narrow absorption lines due to a low projected rotation. Zorec and Royer modeled it as a dwarf star, 67% of the way through its main sequence lifespan, it is a chemically peculiar mercury-manganese star, showing abnormally strong absorption lines of mercury and magnesium with weak lines of helium.

The star has 3.4 times the mass of about 2.8 times the Sun's radius. It is radiating 185 times the Sun's luminosity from its photosphere at an effective temperature of 11,912 K
