Kepler-25 is a star in the northern constellation of Lyra. It is located at the celestial coordinates: Right Ascension 19h 06m 33.2204s Declination +39° 29′ 16.321″ 19h 21m 39.0s,.[7] With an apparent visual magnitude of 10.7,[2] this star is too faint to be seen with the naked eye.

In 2012, two planets were found transiting the star. These planets were confirmed through transit-timing variation method. A third planet was discovered through follow-up radial velocity measurements which was confirmed in January 2014.
