10 Vulpeculae is an astrometric binary[7] star system in the northern constellation of Vulpecula. It is faintly visible to the naked eye with an apparent visual magnitude of 5.497.[2] The system is located roughly 330 light years from the Sun, as determined from an annual parallax shift of 9.83±0.49 mas.[1] It is moving closer to the Sun with a heliocentric radial velocity of −9.9 km/s.[2]

The system is a source of X-ray emission.[8] The visible component is an aging giant star with a stellar classification of G8 III.[2] At the age of 1.15 billion years,[2] it has exhausted the hydrogen at its core region and expanded off the main sequence. It is about 13[4] times the Sun's radius and 2.35[2] times the Sun's mass. The star is radiating 72[2] times the Sun's luminosity from its enlarged photosphere at an effective temperature of 5,008 K.[2]
