35 Piscium is a binary star system in the constellation Pisces. According to Cester (1960), the system has a period of 0.841658 days, zero eccentricity, and an inclination of 19 degrees. Although thought to be an eclipsing binary, Cester argued that the apparent eclipses are not real, and were caused by seeing different portions of distorted-shaped stars in a near contact binary system.[3] Because it is a variable star, it has been given the variable star designation UU Piscium.[4]
