HD 27894 is a 9th magnitude star located approximately 138 light years away in the constellation of Reticulum. It is an orange dwarf (spectral type K2V), a type dimmer and cooler than our Sun.

In 2005, the Geneva Extrasolar Planet Search Team announced some of the discoveries of an extrasolar planet orbiting the star.[6]
