HD 45350 is an 8th magnitude star located approximately 160 light-years away in the constellation of Auriga. It is a yellow subgiant (spectral type G5 IV), a Sun-like star that is finishing hydrogen fusion in its core. Although slightly cooler, it is brighter, although not much considering its subgiant status. However, the star is very old and will soon start to expand becoming finally a red giant.

Planetary system[edit]

In January 2005, the discovery of a very eccentric extrasolar planet orbiting the star was announced by the California and Carnegie Planet Search team.[5]
