The location of the supergiant 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 LSS 4067, the location is 17h 19m 05.548 and -29° 43` 41.1989 .
LSS 4067 has a spectral type of O4.5Ifpe. This means the star is a blue - white supergiant star. LSS 4067 lies at a distance of 9,500.00 light years away from our Sun and our planet Earth or to put it another way, 2,912.65 parsecs away from the Sun.
LSS 4067 has an apparent magnitude of 11.18 which is how bright we see the star from Earth. Apparent Magnitude is also known as Visual Magnitude. Magnitude, whether it be apparent/visual or absolute magnitude is measured by a number, the smaller the number, the brighter the Star is. Our own Sun is the brightest star and therefore has the lowest of all magnitudes, -26.74. A faint star will have a high number.
LSS 4067 is an estimated 9,500.00 light years from our Solar System (Earth and Sun). It would take a spaceship 9,500.00 years travelling at the speed of light to get there. We don't have a space ship that can travel that distance or at that speed yet.
