86 Ursae Majoris (HIP 67848)

86 Ursae Majoris is a blue main-sequence star in the constellation Ursa Major. At 478 light years away, it shines at an apparent visual magnitude of 5.70. It is moving through the Galaxy at a speed of 26 km/s relative to the Sun. Its projected Galactic orbit carries it between 20,700 and 24,200 light years from the center of the Galaxy. It will come closest to the Sun 3.4 million years from now when it will brighten to magnitude 5.18 from a distance of 377 light years.
