ν Serpentis, Latinized as Nu Serpentis, is a solitary [10] star in the Serpens Cauda section of the equatorial constellation of Serpens. It is a white-hued star that is faintly visible to the naked eye with an apparent visual magnitude of 4.32. [2] Based upon an annual parallax shift of 16.05  mas as seen from the Sun, [1] it is about 203 light years from the Sun. The star is drifting further away with a radial velocity of +5 km/s. [5]

This is an A-type main-sequence star with a stellar classification of A2V, [3] and is generating energy through hydrogen fusion at its core. It is 350 [10] million years old with a high rate of spin, showing a projected rotational velocity of 123 km/s. [6] The star has 2.64 [6] times the mass of the Sun and 3.0 [7] times the Sun's radius. It is radiating 76 times the Sun's luminosity from its photosphere at an effective temperature of 9,120 K. [6] Nu Serpentis has an optical companion, a magnitude +9.4 star at an angular separation of 46 arcseconds. [12]
