Location of 104 Piscium

The location of the star in the galaxy is determined by the Right Ascension (R.A.) and Declination (Dec.), these are equivalent to the Longitude and Latitude on the Earth. The Right Ascension is how far expressed in time (hh:mm:ss) the star is from celestial equator. The Declination is how up or down compared to the celestial equator and is expressed in degrees. For 104 Piscium, the location is 01h 39m 15.39 and +14 d 17 ` 08.3 .

Physical Properties/View of 104 Piscium

104 Piscium has a spectral type of K0. This means the star is (K) orange to red coloured 104 Piscium lies at a distance of 443.76 light years away from our Sun and our planet Earth or to put it another way, 135.82 parsecs away from the Sun.

104 Piscium has an apparent magnitude of 6.74 which is how bright we see the star from Earth. Apparent Magnitude is also known as Visual Magnitude. 104 Piscium has an absolute magnitude of 1.07 which is the apparent magnitude of an object if it were 32.6 light years away or 10 parsecs from Earth. Magnitude, whether it be apparent/visual or absolute magnitude is measured by a number, the smaller the number, the brighter the Star is. Our own Sun is the brightest star and therefore has the lowest of all magnitudes, -26.74. A faint star will have a high number. The stars temperature has been calculated at between 3700 and 5200 based on the Class Type and lookup at Wikipedia-Stellar Classification

Source of Information
