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 object 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 of 2M 0219-39

2M 0219-39 Colour and Temperature

Based on the star's spectral type of M6 , 2M 0219-39's colour and type is red star. Based on the star's spectral, the stars temperature is between 2,400.00 and 3,700.00 degrees kelvin.

2M 0219-39 Radius

2M 0219-39 Radius has been calculated as being 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 25.38070 which gives a calculated distance to 2M 0219-39 of 128.51 light years from the Earth or 39.40 parsecs. It is about 755,462,146,707,826 miles from Earth.

The star is roughly 8,126,776.74 Astronomical Units from the Earth/Sun give or take a few. An Astronomical Unit is the distance between Earth and the Sun. The number of A.U. is the number of times that the star is from the Earth compared to the Sun.

Travel Time to 2M 0219-39

The time it will take to travel to this star is dependent on how fast you are going. U.G. has done some calculations as to how long it will take going at differing speeds. A note about the calculations, when I'm talking about years, I'm talking non-leap years only (365 days).

The New Horizons space probe is the fastest probe that we've sent into space at the time of writing. Its primary mission was to visit Pluto which at the time of launch (2006), Pluto was still a planet.
