PSR J1807-2459 A (Pulsar) Facts

PSR J1807-2459 A Facts

Location of PSR J1807-2459 A

The location of the pulsar 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 PSR J1807-2459 A, the location is 10h 07m 20.00 and -24° 59` 53.00 .

Physical Properties of PSR J1807-2459 A

PSR J1807-2459 A has a spectral type of PSR.

Distance to PSR J1807-2459 A

The Parallax of the star is given as 0.36 which gives a calculated distance to PSR J1807-2459 A of 9100.54 light years from the Earth or 2790.18 parsecs. It would take a spaceship travelling at the speed of light, 9100.54 years to get there. We don't have the technology or spaceship that can carry people over that distance yet.

The star is roughly 575,511,926.87 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.
