WASP-127

WASP-127 is a white to yellow star that can be located in the constellation of Sextans. The description is based on the spectral class. The star can not be seen by the naked eye, you need a telescope to see it. It is calculated at being 11.410 Billion Years old. This information comes from ExoPlanet. WASP-127 has at least 1 Extrasolar Planets believed to be in orbit around the star.

Location of WASP-127

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 WASP-127, the location is 10h 42m 14.08 and -03° 50` 06.30 .

Physical Properties (Colour, Age, Radius) of WASP-127

WASP-127 has a spectral type of G5. This means the star is a white to yellow star.

WASP-127 has been calculated as 1.39 times bigger than the Sun.The Sun's radius is 695,800km, therefore the star's radius is an estimated 967,162.00.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 11.41 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.

WASP-127 Apparent and Absolute Magnitudes

WASP-127 has an apparent magnitude of 10.15 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.
