Frosty Leo Nebula Facts

  • Frosty Leo Nebula is a giant star that can be located in the constellation of Leo. The description is based on the spectral class.
  • Frosty Leo Nebula is not part of the constellation outline but is within the borders of the constellation.
  • Based on the spectral type (K7II/III D) of the star, the star's colour is orange to red .
  • The star is calculated at being about 9794.70 light years away from us. Distance

Location of Frosty Leo Nebula

The location of the giant 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 Frosty Leo Nebula, the location is 09h 39m 53.96 and 11° 58` 52.6 .

Physical Properties of Frosty Leo Nebula

Frosty Leo Nebula Colour and Temperature

Based on the star's spectral type of K7II/III D , Frosty Leo Nebula's colour and type is orange to red giant star. Based on the star's spectral, the stars temperature is between 3,700.00 and 5,200.00 degrees kelvin.

Distance to Frosty Leo Nebula

The Parallax of the star is given as 0.33300 which gives a calculated distance to Frosty Leo Nebula of 9794.70 light years from the Earth or 3003.00 parsecs. It is about 57,579,371,942,721,505 miles from Earth.

The star is roughly 619,408,897.06 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 Frosty Leo Nebula

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.
