NR Vulpeculae Facts

  • NR Vulpeculae is a star that can be located in the constellation of Vulpecula. The description is based on the spectral class.
  • NR Vulpeculae is not part of the constellation outline but is within the borders of the constellation.
  • Based on the spectral type (M11a) of the star, the star's colour is red .
  • The star can not be seen by the naked eye, you need a telescope to see it.
  • NR Vulpeculae has a radius that is 980.00 times bigger than the Suns. Radius
  • The star is calculated at being about 40770.42 light years away from us. Distance

Location of NR Vulpeculae

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 NR Vulpeculae, the location is 19h 50m 11.93 and 25° 55` 24.2 .

Physical Properties of NR Vulpeculae

NR Vulpeculae Temperature and Colour

Based on the star's spectral type of M11a , NR Vulpeculae's colour and type is red star. Based on the star's spectral, the stars temperature is between 2,400.00 and 3,700.00 degrees kelvin.

NR Vulpeculae Radius

NR Vulpeculae Radius has been calculated as being 980.00 times bigger than the Sun. The Sun's radius is 695,800km, therefore the star's radius is an estimated 681,884,000.00.km. If you need the diameter of the star, you just need to multiple the radius by 2.

NR Vulpeculae Apparent and Absolute Magnitudes

NR Vulpeculae has an apparent magnitude of 9.13 which is how bright we see the star from Earth. Apparent Magnitude is also known as Visual Magnitude. Using the supplied Parallax value, you would get an absolute magnitude of -6.35 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.

Distance to NR Vulpeculae

The Parallax of the star is given as 0.08000 which gives a calculated distance to NR Vulpeculae of 40770.42 light years from the Earth or 12500 parsecs. It is about 239,674,025,487,352,517 miles from Earth.

The star is roughly 2,578,292,112.30 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 NR Vulpeculae

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.
