- Denebola is suspected of being a Detla Scuti type variable star.
- Denebola is a member of the IC 2391 supercluster, which includes stars such as Alpha Pictoris and Beta Canis Minoris.
- Denebola emits an excess of infrared radiation, which likely means that Denebola possesses a circumstellar debris disk of cool dust in orbit around it typical of early planetary-formation. The disk is located at a radius of ~ 39AU from the star.
The Denebola star system lies approximately 11.0pc from Terra, and is located in a Rimtrailing/Trailing direction from Terra at bearing 250.6o Galactic Longitude and +70.8o North Galactic Latitude.
