V830 Tauri is a red star that can be located in the constellation of Taurus. The description is based on the spectral class. V830 Tauri is not part of the constellation but is within the borders of the constellation.

The star can not be seen by the naked eye, you need a telescope to see it. It is calculated at being .002 Billion Years old. This information comes from ExoPlanet. V830 Tauri has at least 1 Extrasolar Planets believed to be in orbit around the star.

V830 Tauri's Alternative Names

V830 Tauri has alternative name(s) :- V830 Tau.

More details on star alternative names can be found at Star Names .

Location of V830 Tauri

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 star is compared to the celestial equator and is expressed in degrees. For V830 Tauri, the location is 04h 33m 10.00 and 24° 33` 43.00 .

Physical Properties (Colour, Age, Radius) of V830 Tauri

V830 Tauri has a spectral type of M0. This means the star is a red star.

V830 Tauri has been calculated as 2.00 times bigger than the Sun.The Sun's radius is 695,800km, therefore the star's radius is an estimated 1,391,600.00.km. If you need the diameter of the star, you just need to multiple the radius by 2.

The star is believed to be about 0.00 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.

V830 Tauri Apparent and Absolute Magnitudes

V830 Tauri has an apparent magnitude of 12.10 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 6.51 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 V830 Tauri

The Parallax of the star is given as 7.63 which gives a calculated distance to V830 Tauri of 427.27 light years from the Earth or 131.00 parsecs. It would take a spaceship travelling at the speed of light, 427.27 years to get there. We don't have the technology or spaceship that can carry people over that distance yet.

The star is roughly 27,020,501.34 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.
