Omicron1 Orionis (ο1 Ori) is a binary star[10] in the northeastern corner of the constellation Orion. It is visible to the naked eye with an apparent visual magnitude of 4.7.[4] Based upon an annual parallax shift of 5.01±0.71 mas, it is located approximately 650 light years from the Sun. At that distance, the visual magnitude of the star is diminished by an interstellar absorption factor of 0.27 due to intervening dust.[5]

The two components of this system have an orbital period of greater than 1,900 days (5.2 years).[10] The primary component is an evolved red giant with the stellar classification of M3S III. This is an oxygen-rich S-type star on the asymptotic giant branch.[3] It is a semiregular variable[11] that is pulsating with periods of 30.8 and 70.7 days, each with nearly identical amplitudes of 0.05 in magnitude.[12] The star has an estimated 90% of the mass of the Sun but has expanded to 214 times the Sun's radius.[6] It shines with 4,046[7] times the solar luminosity from its outer atmosphere at an effective temperature of 3,465 K.[8]
