Sigma Serpentis is a yellow-white F-type main sequence dwarf with an apparent magnitude of +4.82. It is approximately 89.2 light years from Earth. This star has 1.6 times the mass of the Sun with 1.4 times the Sun's radius. It is shining with 4.4 times the luminosity of the Sun, with the radiation being emitted from an outer atmosphere at an effective temperature of 7,110 K.
