27 Vulpeculae is a single,[10] blue-white star in the northern constellation of Vulpecula. It is a dim star, visible to the naked eye, with an apparent visual magnitude of 5.59.[2] An annual parallax shift of 10.27±0.29 mas[1] provides a distance estimate of about 318 light years. It is moving closer with a heliocentric radial velocity of −22 km/s,[6] and will make perihelion passage at a distance of around 119 ly (36.56 pc) in 3.75 million years.[5]

This is a B-type main-sequence star with a stellar classification of B9 V.[3] It is spinning rapidly, showing a projected rotational velocity of 335.[4] The star has an estimated 2.77[4] times the mass of the Sun and about 3.1[7] times the Sun's radius. It is radiating 75[4] times the Sun's luminosity from its photosphere at an effective temperature of 10,789 K.[4]
