Kepler-92 (Planet Orbiting Star) Facts

Kepler-92 Facts

Location of Kepler-92

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 Kepler-92, the location is 19h 16m 21.00 and 41° 33` 47.16 .
