Believed to be a true double star based on their similar motion and distance. The two stars are widely separated at around 1,900 astronomical units, so if they do orbit, it would take in excess of 44,000 years.

Star v1 is a magnitude 4.88 with a B-V color index of 0.26, and a spectral type A8Vm. Star v2 is also a magnitude 4.88, with a B-V color index of 0.27, and a spectral type A4IVm. So both stars appear to be about the same visually. Star v2 is actually a spectroscopic binary.
