CD -27°14659 is located about 28.8 light-years away from our Sun, Sol, in the southwest corner of the constellation Capricornus, the She-Goat. The star may be visible to many Humans without a telescope.

CD -27°14659 is a main-sequence orange-red dwarf star of spectral and luminosity type K0-3 V. It may have around 87 percent of Sol's mass, 84 percent of its diameter[1], and 33 percent of its luminosity. It appears to be 78 to 91 percent as enriched as Sol in elements heavier than hydrogen ("metals") based on its abundance of iron[2].

The star may have a spectroscopic companion star.

The distance from CD -27°14659 where an Earth-type planet would be "comfortable" with liquid water is centered around only 0.575 AU -- between the orbital distances of Mercury and Venus in the Solar System. An Earth-type in such a water-zone orbit would probably would have a period of around 170 days or close to half an Earth year.
