HD 32188 is suspected variable star in the northern constellation of Auriga. It is a shell star, which means it has a peculiar spectrum indicating there is a circumstellar disk of gas around the star's equator. While the spectral luminosity class is III, analysis of its colour and brightness suggest it more closely resembles a supergiant star.[3]
