WISE 1828+2650

WISE 1828+2650 Facts

Location of WISE 1828+2650

The location of the Sub-Brown Dwarf 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 WISE 1828+2650, the location is 18h 28m 31.09 and 26° 50` 37.72 .

Physical Properties (Colour, Age) of WISE 1828+2650

WISE 1828+2650 Colour and Temperature

WISE 1828+2650 has a spectral type of Y2. This means the star is a brown Sub-Brown Dwarf Star.

The star is believed to be about 5.00 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 1828+2650

The Parallax of the star is given as 71.43 which gives a calculated distance to WISE 1828+2650 of 45.66 light years from the Earth or 14.00 parsecs. It would take a spaceship travelling at the speed of light, 45.66 years to get there. We don't have the technology or spaceship that can carry people over that distance yet.

The star is roughly 2,887,687.17 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.
