Its radius is equal 47-50 solar, and weight - to 6,4-6,7 mass of the Sun. At the same time the age is 55-65 million years. Thanks to these data it was succeeded to establish that the Pole star, most likely, for the first time crosses a strip of the pulsation instability on the chart Gertsshprunga-Russell.
