The location of the supergiant 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 Cotton Candy Nebula, the location is 17h 18m 19.85 and -32° 27` 21.6 .
Based on the star's spectral type of G2I C , Cotton Candy Nebula's colour and type is yellow supergiant star. Based on the star's spectral, the stars temperature is between 5,200.00 and 6,000.00 degrees kelvin.
