EPIC 201128338

EPIC 201128338 Facts

Location of EPIC 201128338

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 EPIC 201128338, the location is 12h 06m 31.87 and -05° 49` 38.68 .

Physical Properties (Colour, Metallicity, Radius) of EPIC 201128338

EPIC 201128338 Colour and Temperature

EPIC 201128338 has a spectral type of M0.0V. This means the star is a red main sequence star.

EPIC 201128338 Radius

EPIC 201128338 has been calculated as 0.63 times bigger than the Sun. The Sun's radius is 695,800km, therefore the star's radius is an estimated 439,049.80.km. If you need the diameter of the star, you just need to multiple the radius by 2.

The star's metallicity is 0.120000, this value is the fractional amount of the star that is not Hydrogen (X) or Helium (Y). An older star would have a high metallicity whereas a new star would have a lower one.

Distance to EPIC 201128338

The Parallax of the star is given as 8.93 which gives a calculated distance to EPIC 201128338 of 365.30 light years from the Earth or 112.00 parsecs. It would take a spaceship travelling at the speed of light, 365.30 years to get there. We don't have the technology or spaceship that can carry people over that distance yet.

The star is roughly 23,101,497.33 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.
