EPIC 201637175

EPIC 201637175 Facts

Location of EPIC 201637175

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 201637175 , the location is 11h 17m 56.00 and 02° 37` 07.00 .

Physical Properties (Colour, Metallicity, Radius) of EPIC 201637175

EPIC 201637175 Colour and Temperature

EPIC 201637175 has a spectral type of M0V. This means the star is a red main sequence star.

EPIC 201637175 Radius

EPIC 201637175 has been calculated as 0.57 times bigger than the Sun. The Sun's radius is 695,800km, therefore the star's radius is an estimated 396,606.00.km. If you need the diameter of the star, you just need to multiple the radius by 2.

The star's metallicity is 0.080000, 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.

EPIC 201637175 Apparent and Absolute Magnitudes

EPIC 201637175 has an apparent magnitude of 17.00 which is how bright we see the star from Earth. Apparent Magnitude is also known as Visual Magnitude. Using the supplied Parallax value, you would get an absolute magnitude of 10.24 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.

Distance to EPIC 201637175

The Parallax of the star is given as 4.44 which gives a calculated distance to EPIC 201637175 of 733.87 light years from the Earth or 225.00 parsecs. It would take a spaceship travelling at the speed of light, 733.87 years to get there. We don't have the technology or spaceship that can carry people over that distance yet.

The star is roughly 46,409,258.02 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.
