ο Ophiuchi, Latinized as Omicron Ophiuchi, is a wide double star in the equatorial constellation of Ophiuchus. The co-moving pair are visible to the naked eye as a dim point of light, with the two components having apparent visual magnitudes of 5.14 and 6.59.[2] As of 2015, they had an angular separation of 10.0 along a position angle of 354°.[9] The distance to both stars is approximately 281 light years based on parallax, and they are drifting closer to the Sun with a radial velocity of around −29 km/s.[5]

The brighter member of the pair, designated component A, is an aging giant star with a stellar classification of G8III.[2] With the supply of hydrogen at its core exhausted, it has expanded to 12[1] times the radius of the Sun. The star is radiating 75[1] times the Sun's luminosity from its enlarged photosphere at an effective temperature of 4,849 K.[1] The secondary star, component B, has a class of F6IV-V,[2] matching an F-type star with a luminosity class that is a blend of traits from a main sequence and a subgiant star. It has three[3] times the Sun's radius and is radiating 12.6 times the Sun's luminosity at 6,296 K.[3]
