98 Aquarii is the Flamsteed designation for a star in the equatorial constellation Aquarius. The Bayer designation for this star is b1 Aquarii. It is visible to the naked eye with an apparent visual magnitude of +3.97.[2] The distance to this star, Script error: No such module "convert"., is known from parallax measurements made with the Hipparcos spacecraft.[1]

With over double the mass of the Sun,[5] this is an evolved giant star that has a stellar classification of K0 III.[3] The measured angular diameter of this star is 2.54 ± 0.13 mas.[8] At the estimated distance of 98 Aquarii,[1] this yields a physical size of about 14 times the radius of the Sun.[6] The expanded outer envelope has an effective temperature of 4,630 K,[5] giving it the orange glow of a K-type star.[9]
