Location of EPIC 228754001
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 228754001, the location is 12h 08m 39.94 and -08° 44` 49.83 .
Physical Properties (Colour, Metallicity, Age, Radius) of EPIC 228754001
EPIC 228754001 has a spectral type of K. This means the star is a orange to red star.
EPIC 228754001 has been calculated as 4.11 times bigger than the Sun.The Sun's radius is 695,800km, therefore the star's radius is an estimated 2,859,738.00.km. If you need the diameter of the star, you just need to multiple the radius by 2.
The star's metallicity is 0.050000, 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.
The star is believed to be about 5.50 Billion years old. To put in context, the Sun is believed to be about five billion years old and the Universe is about 13.8 billion years old.
