WISE 0458+6434 A

WISE 0458+6434 A is a brown Cool Methane Dwarf Star that can be located in the constellation of Camelopardalis. The description is based on the spectral class. It is calculated at being 1.000 Billion Years old. This information comes from ExoPlanet. WISE 0458+6434 A has at least 1 Extrasolar Planets believed to be in orbit around the star.

Location of WISE 0458+6434 A

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 WISE 0458+6434 A, the location is 04h 58m 54.00 and 64° 34` 53.00 .

Physical Properties (Colour, Age, Radius) of WISE 0458+6434 A

WISE 0458+6434 A has a spectral type of T 8.5. This means the star is a brown Cool Methane Dwarf Star.

WISE 0458+6434 A has been calculated as 0.10 times bigger than the Sun.The Sun's radius is 695,800km, therefore the star's radius is an estimated 68,188.40.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 1.00 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.

Distance to WISE 0458+6434 A

The Parallax of the star is given as 95.24 which gives a calculated distance to WISE 0458+6434 A of 34.25 light years from the Earth or 10.50 parsecs. It would take a spaceship travelling at the speed of light, 34.25 years to get there. We don't have the technology or spaceship that can carry people over that distance yet.
