HR 5553 is a binary star system located thirty-eight light-years away, in the constellation Boötes. The primary component is an orange, main sequence (K2 V) star.

An infrared excess has been detected around this star, most likely indicating the presence of a circumstellar disk at a radius of 34.2 AU. The temperature of this dust is 40 K.[1]
