Location of EPIC-206011691

The location of the 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-206011691, the location is 22h 41m 12.89 and -14° 29` 20.35 .

Physical Properties of EPIC-206011691

EPIC-206011691 Temperature and Colour

Based on the star's spectral type of M0 , EPIC-206011691's colour and type is red star. Based on the star's spectral, the stars temperature is between 2,400.00 and 3,700.00 degrees kelvin.

EPIC-206011691 Radius

EPIC-206011691 Radius has been calculated as being 0.60 times bigger than the Sun. The Sun's radius is 695,800km, therefore the star's radius is an estimated 417,480.00.km. If you need the diameter of the star, you just need to multiple the radius by 2.

EPIC-206011691 Metalicity

The star's metallicity is 0.130000, 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-206011691 Apparent and Absolute Magnitudes

EPIC-206011691 has an apparent magnitude of 12.85 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 8.79 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-206011691

The Parallax of the star is given as 15.38460 which gives a calculated distance to EPIC-206011691 of 212.01 light years from the Earth or 65.00 parsecs. It is about 1,246,327,365,368,657 miles from Earth.

The star is roughly 13,407,118.98 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.

Travel Time to EPIC-206011691

The time it will take to travel to this star is dependent on how fast you are going. U.G. has done some calculations as to how long it will take going at differing speeds. A note about the calculations, when I'm talking about years, I'm talking non-leap years only (365 days).

The New Horizons space probe is the fastest probe that we've sent into space at the time of writing. Its primary mission was to visit Pluto which at the time of launch (2006), Pluto was still a planet.
