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 of EPIC 211924657

EPIC 211924657 Colour and Temperature

Based on the star's spectral type of M3.0V , EPIC 211924657's colour and type is red main sequence star. Based on the star's spectral, the stars temperature is between 2,400.00 and 3,700.00 degrees kelvin.

EPIC 211924657 Radius

EPIC 211924657 Radius has been calculated as being 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.

EPIC 211924657 Metalicity

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 12.50000 which gives a calculated distance to EPIC 211924657 of 260.93 light years from the Earth or 80 parsecs. It is about 1,533,909,718,624,799 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.

Travel Time to EPIC 211924657

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.
