2M 0219-39 is a red star that can be located in the constellation of Fornax. The description is based on the spectral class. 2M 0219-39 is not part of the constellation but is within the borders of the constellation.

2M 0219-39 has at least 1 Extrasolar Planets believed to be in orbit around the star.

Location of 2M 0219-39

The location of the star in the night sky 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 along the celestial equator. If the R.A. is positive then its eastwards. The Declination is how far north or south the star is compared to the celestial equator and is expressed in degrees. For 2M 0219-39, the location is 02h 19m 22.00 and -39° 25` 23.00 .

Physical Properties (Colour, Radius) of 2M 0219-39

2M 0219-39 has a spectral type of M6. This means the star is a red star.

2M 0219-39 has been calculated as 0.27 times bigger than the Sun.The Sun's radius is 695,800km, therefore the star's radius is an estimated 187,866.00.km. If you need the diameter of the star, you just need to multiple the radius by 2.

Distance to 2M 0219-39

The Parallax of the star is given as 25.38 which gives a calculated distance to 2M 0219-39 of 128.51 light years from the Earth or 39.40 parsecs. It would take a spaceship travelling at the speed of light, 128.51 years to get there. We don't have the technology or spaceship that can carry people over that distance yet.
