HAT-P-15 is a G-type main-sequence star about 630 light-years away. The star is older than Sun yet has a concentration of heavy elements roughly 190% of solar abundance.[2] The star has no noticeable starspot activity.[3]

The spectroscopic survey in 2015 have failed to find any stellar companions to it,[4] yet imaging survey have identified a possibly two companion red dwarf stars at projected separations 1210 and 1370 AU, respectively.[5]

The star was named Berehynia in December 2019 by the Ukrainian amateur astronomers.[6]

Planetary system

In 2010 a transiting hot superjovian planet b (named Tryzub in 2019[6]) was detected. It has an equilibrium temperature of 904±20 K.[7] The orbital simulation shown the planets inward of orbit of b would in-spiral and be destroyed within time-span of less than billion years.[8]
