HD 168443 is a yellow dwarf star of (spectral type G5) about the mass of the Sun. It is in the constellation of Serpens Cauda, 123 light years from the Solar System. It is known to be orbited by one large planet and a brown dwarf. The brown dwarf takes 30 times longer to orbit the star than the gas giant planet.[2][3]
