AE Aurigae is a blue O-type main sequence dwarf with a mean apparent magnitude of +5.99. It is classified as an Orion type variable star and its brightness varies irregularly between magnitudes +5.78 and +6.08. It is approximately 1460 light-years from Earth. It is a runaway star that might have been ejected during a collision of two binary star groups.
