HD 115404 is a binary star system located in the constellation Coma Berenices. Parallax measurements made by Hipparcos put the system at 36 light-years, or 11 parsecs, away.[7] The combined apparent magnitude of the system is 6.52,[11] with the magnitudes of the components being 6.66 and 9.50.[1]

The primary component, designated A, is an K-type main sequence star.[4] It is about 70% as massive as the Sun, and is 0.76 times as wide.[9] Its companion is a red dwarf (M0.5 V).[5] It has 54.2% the mass of the Sun, and is 0.55 times as wide.[10] The two stars orbit each other every 770 years, and are separated by about 8″.[8] The system is thought to be fairly old, at 5.4 to 13.5 billion years old.[9]
