EPIC 211924657 Facts

Location of EPIC 211924657

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 211924657, the location is 08h 40m 06.43 and 19° 05` 34.48 .

Physical Properties (Colour, Metallicity, Radius) of EPIC 211924657

EPIC 211924657 Colour and Temperature

EPIC 211924657 has a spectral type of M3.0V. This means the star is a red main sequence star.

EPIC 211924657 Radius

EPIC 211924657 has been calculated as 0.35 times bigger than the Sun. The Sun's radius is 695,800km, therefore the star's radius is an estimated 243,530.00.km. If you need the diameter of the star, you just need to multiple the radius by 2.

The star's metallicity is 0.120000, 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 211924657

The Parallax of the star is given as 12.50 which gives a calculated distance to EPIC 211924657 of 260.93 light years from the Earth or 80 parsecs. It is about 1,533,909,718,624,796.75 miles from Earth.

The star is roughly 16,501,069.52 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.

Time to Travel to EPIC 211924657

A note about the calculations, when I'm talking about years, I'm talking non-leap years only (365 days).

If you were to drive there at about 120 m.p.h. in a car with an infinity engine so you didn't have to pull over for petrol, it would take you 12,782,580,988,539.97 hours or 1,459,198,742.98 years.

At the time of writing, the fastest probe so far created is the New Horizon probe which is travelling at a speed of 33,000 m.p.h. If the probe was travelling to EPIC 211924657 then it would take 46,482,112,685.60 hours / 5,306,177.25 years to get there. Speed Ref: N.A.S.A.

It would to take a spaceship journey travelling at the speed of light, 260.93 years to get there. We don't have the technology or spaceship that can carry people over that distance yet.
