WASP-105 Facts

  • WASP-105 is a star that can be located in the constellation of Phoenix. The description is based on the spectral class.
  • WASP-105 is not part of the constellation outline but is within the borders of the constellation.
  • Based on the spectral type (K2) of the star, the star's colour is orange to red .
  • The star can not be seen by the naked eye, you need a telescope to see it.
  • WASP-105 has at least 1 Extrasolar Planets believed to be in orbit around the star.
  • WASP-105 has a radius that is 0.90 times bigger than the Suns. Radius

Location of WASP-105

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 WASP-105, the location is 01h 36m 40.00 and -50° 39` 32.00 .

Physical Properties of WASP-105

WASP-105 Colour and Temperature

Based on the star's spectral type of K2 , WASP-105's colour and type is orange to red star. Based on the star's spectral, the stars temperature is between 3,700.00 and 5,200.00 degrees kelvin.

WASP-105 Radius

WASP-105 Radius has been calculated as being 0.90 times bigger than the Sun. The Sun's radius is 695,800km, therefore the star's radius is an estimated 626,220.00.km. If you need the diameter of the star, you just need to multiple the radius by 2.

WASP-105 Metalicity

The star's metallicity is 0.160000, 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.

WASP-105 Apparent and Absolute Magnitudes

WASP-105 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. 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.
