Alpha Fornacis is a relatively young main-sequence star of spectral type A7VI, having around 1.5M☉ and 1.09R☉, and is roughly 8150°K (8423°C) in temperature, being noticeable hotter than the Sun. It has a large belt of asteroids orbiting it, extending from roughly 0.8AU to 15 AU. It has a variety of asteroids orbiting it due to the differences in its protoplanetary disk about 400 million years ago.

  1. Parent refers to what the object is orbiting: for planets and minor planets, this refers to the star; for satellites, this refers to the planet/minor planet said satellite is orbiting.
  2. To achieve diameter, multiply Radius by 2.
