EPIC 220522664 Facts

Location of EPIC 220522664

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 220522664, the location is 00h 39m 17.26 and 07° 16` 37.56 .

Physical Properties (Colour, Metallicity, Radius) of EPIC 220522664

EPIC 220522664 Colour and Temperature

EPIC 220522664 has a spectral type of M1.0V. This means the star is a red main sequence star.

EPIC 220522664 Radius

EPIC 220522664 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 395,214.40.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 220522664

The Parallax of the star is given as 8.47 which gives a calculated distance to EPIC 220522664 of 384.87 light years from the Earth or 118.00 parsecs. It is about 2,262,506,547,377,172.13 miles from Earth.

The star is roughly 24,339,077.54 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 220522664

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 18,854,221,228,143.10 hours or 2,152,308,359.38 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 220522664 then it would take 68,560,804,465.97 hours / 7,826,575.85 years to get there. Speed Ref: N.A.S.A.

It would to take a spaceship journey travelling at the speed of light, 384.87 years to get there. We don't have the technology or spaceship that can carry people over that distance yet.
