HD 91190 is a suspected astrometric binary[7] star system in the northern circumpolar constellation of Draco. It is faintly visible to the naked eye, having an apparent visual magnitude of 4.86.[2] The distance to HD 91190, as estimated from its annual parallax shift of 4.5 mas,[1] is around 720 light years. This system is moving further away from the Sun with a heliocentric radial velocity of +17 km/s,[4] having come to within 170 ly some 2.4 million years ago.[2]

At the age of about two billion years,[4] this is an evolved G-type giant star with a stellar classification of G8 III-IIIb,[3] it has 2.39[4] times the mass of the Sun and is radiating 69[4] times the Sun's luminosity from its photosphere at an effective temperature of around 4,965 K.[4]
