HD 34557 is a double star in the northern constellation of Auriga. The fainter star has an angular separation of 0.380 from the primary component.[3] They have a combined apparent magnitude of 5.52,[2] making HD 34557 faintly visible to the naked eye from dark skies. Based upon parallax measurements made with the Hipparcos satellite, this system is roughly 280 light years away;[1] the primary component is spinning rapidly, with a projected rotational velocity of 217 km/s.[7] It has a stellar classification of A3V,[4] making it an A-type main sequence star.
