An annual parallax shift of 61.64 mas provides a distance estimate of 62 light years. It is moving closer with a radial velocity of −5 km/s, and in an estimated 2.7 million years will pass within 24.3 ly (7.46 pc) of the Sun. In the next 7500 years, the south Celestial pole will pass close to this star and Omega Carinae.
