30 Arietis (abbreviated 30 Ari) is a 6th-apparent-magnitude quadruple star[3] in the constellation of Aries. 30 Arietis is the Flamsteed designation. 30 Arietis A and B are separated by 38.1" or about 1500 AU at a distance of 130 light years away. The main components of both systems are F-type main-sequence stars, meaning they are fusing hydrogen in their cores.[2] 30 Arietis A is itself a spectroscopic binary with an orbital period of 1.1 days.[4] The 30 Arietis system is 910 million years old, one fifth the age of the Sun.

Planetary system

On November 27, 2009, the discovery of a very massive planet was announced to be orbiting 30 Arietis B at a distance of about 1 AU.[2]
