DM Lyrae

DM Lyrae Facts

Location of DM Lyrae

The location of the subdwarf 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 DM Lyrae, the location is 18h 58m 44.43 and 30° 15` 33.0 .

Physical Properties of DM Lyrae

DM Lyrae Colour and Temperature

DM Lyrae has a spectral type of sd.

DM Lyrae Apparent and Absolute Magnitudes

DM Lyrae has an apparent magnitude of 18.00 which is how bright we see the star from Earth. Apparent Magnitude is also known as Visual Magnitude. 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.
