HAT-P-3, is a metal-rich K star located about 450 light-years away in the constellation Ursa Major. At a magnitude of about 11.5 it is not visible to the naked eye but is visible in a small to medium-sized amateur telescope. It is believed to be a relatively young star and has a slightly enhanced level of chromospheric activity.[4][9]

Planetary system[edit]

This star is home to the extrasolar planet HAT-P-3b discovered by the HATNet Project using the transit method.[4]
