HD 23753 is a single[10] star in the equatorial zodiac constellation of Taurus, and is a member of the Pleiades open cluster.[11] It is dimly visible to the naked eye with an apparent visual magnitude of 5.44.[2] The distance to this star, as determined from its annual parallax shift of 7.7 mas,[1] is about 420 light years. It is moving further from the Earth with a heliocentric radial velocity of +8 km/s.[5] The star is positioned near the ecliptic and so is subject to lunar occultations.[12]

This is a B-type main-sequence star with a stellar classification of B9 Vn,[4] where the 'n' indicates "nebulous" lines due to rapid rotation. It is 125[8] million years old with a projected rotational velocity of 335 km/s,[3] completing a full revolution about its axis every 16.79 hours.[7] HD 23753 has been catalogued as a suspected variable star with the designation NSV 1321,[13] although the amplitude is no more than 0.1 magnitude and it may even be suitable for a photometric standard.[14]

HD 23753 has 3.21[3] times the mass of the Sun and 3.2[6] times the Sun's radius. It is radiating 150[3] times the Sun's luminosity from its photosphere at an effective temperature of 11,535 K.[3]
