The two stars will eventually collide and explode. The explosion will create a luminous red nova which will be bright enough for us to see on Earth as a magnitude 2 object. EarthSky
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 KIC 9832227, the location is 19h 29m 15.948 and +46° 37` 19.89 .
