Gliese 146 is a K5V class star located in the constellation Horologium. At 44.4 light years, GJ 146 has an apparent magnitude of +8.57. Gliese 146 is also known as HD 22496, HIP 16711, SAO-216392, and LHS 1563.[10]

Its speed relative to the sun is 38.1 km/second, and its galactic orbit ranges between 20,800 and 25,400 light years from the center of the Galaxy. It is a suspected variable star.[4][5] It belongs to the Hyades supercluster of stars[11] It is one of 155 K type stars within 50 light years.[10] It is one of 500 stars selected for the SCUBA-2 All Sky Survey for stars with debris disks.[12]
