Denis-P J104814.9-395604 Facts

Denis-P J104814.9-395604's Alternative Names

Denis-P J104814.9-395604 has alternative name(s) :- 2MASS J10481463-3956062.

More details on objects' alternative names can be found at Star Names .

Location of Denis-P J104814.9-395604

The location of the main sequence 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 Denis-P J104814.9-395604, the location is 10 48 14.5734267094 and -39 56 06.843210566 .

Radial Velocity and Proper Motion of Denis-P J104814.9-395604

Proper Motion

All stars like planets orbit round a central spot, in the case of planets, its the central star such as the Sun. In the case of a star, its the galactic centre. The constellations that we see today will be different than they were 50,000 years ago or 50,000 years from now. Proper Motion details the movements of these stars and are measured in milliarcseconds. The star is moving -988.10 milliarcseconds/year towards the north and -1,179.18 milliarcseconds/year east if we saw them in the horizon.

Radial Velocity

The Radial Velocity, that is the speed at which the star is moving away/towards the Sun is -11.00 km/s . When the value is negative then the star and the Sun are getting closer to one another, likewise, a positive number means that two stars are moving away. Its nothing to fear as the stars are so far apart, they won't collide in our life-time, if ever.
