Location of OGLE2-TR-L9

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 OGLE2-TR-L9, the location is 11h 07m 55.00 and -61° 08` 46.00 .

Physical Properties of OGLE2-TR-L9

OGLE2-TR-L9 Temperature and Colour

Based on the star's spectral type of F3 , OGLE2-TR-L9's colour and type is yellow to white star. Based on the star's spectral, the stars temperature is between 6,000.00 and 7,500.00 degrees kelvin.

OGLE2-TR-L9 Radius

OGLE2-TR-L9 Radius has been calculated as being 1.53 times bigger than the Sun. The Sun's radius is 695,800km, therefore the star's radius is an estimated 1,064,574.00.km. If you need the diameter of the star, you just need to multiple the radius by 2.

OGLE2-TR-L9 Metalicity

The star's metallicity is 0.200000, this value is the fractional amount of the star that is not Hydrogen (X) or Helium (Y). An older star would have a high metallicity whereas a new star would have a lower one.

OGLE2-TR-L9 Estimated Age

The star is believed to be about 0.66 Billion years old. To put in context, the Sun is believed to be about five billion years old and the Universe is about 13.8 billion years old.

Distance to OGLE2-TR-L9

The Parallax of the star is given as 1.11110 which gives a calculated distance to OGLE2-TR-L9 of 2935.50 light years from the Earth or 900.01 parsecs. It is about 17,256,704,782,980,487 miles from Earth.

The star is roughly 185,639,094.72 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 OGLE2-TR-L9

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.
