EPIC-210490365

EPIC-210490365 Facts

Location of EPIC-210490365

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-210490365, the location is 04h 13m 06.00 and 15° 14` 52.00 .

Physical Properties (Colour, Metallicity, Radius) of EPIC-210490365

EPIC-210490365 Colour and Temperature

EPIC-210490365 has a spectral type of M4.5. This means the star is a red star.

EPIC-210490365 Radius

EPIC-210490365 has been calculated as 0.30 times bigger than the Sun.The Sun's radius is 695,800km, therefore the star's radius is an estimated 205,261.00.km. If you need the diameter of the star, you just need to multiple the radius by 2.

The star's metallicity is 0.030000, 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-210490365 Apparent and Absolute Magnitudes

EPIC-210490365 has an apparent magnitude of 15.88 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 12.58 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-210490365

The Parallax of the star is given as 21.88 which gives a calculated distance to EPIC-210490365 of 149.06 light years from the Earth or 45.70 parsecs. It would take a spaceship travelling at the speed of light, 149.06 years to get there. We don't have the technology or spaceship that can carry people over that distance yet.

The star is roughly 9,426,235.96 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.
