WISEPC J205628.90+145953.3 Facts

Location of WISEPC J205628.90+145953.3

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 WISEPC J205628.90+145953.3, the location is 20h 56m 28.88 and 14° 59` 53.68 .

Proper Motion of WISEPC J205628.90+145953.3

All stars like planets orbit round a central spot, in the case of planets, its the central star such as the Sun. In the case of a star, its the galactic centre. The constellations that we see today will be different than they were 50,000 years ago or 50,000 years from now. Proper Motion details the movements of these stars and are measured in milliarcseconds. The star is moving 534.00 milliarcseconds/year towards the north and 812.00 milliarcseconds/year east if we saw them in the horizon. . When the value is negative then the star and the Sun are getting closer to one another, likewise, a positive number means that two stars are moving away. Its nothing to fear as the stars are so far apart, they won't collide in our life-time, if ever.

WISEPC J205628.90+145953.3 Colour and Temperature

WISEPC J205628.90+145953.3 has a spectral type of Y0. This means the star is a brown Sub-Brown Dwarf Star.

Distance to WISEPC J205628.90+145953.3

The Parallax of the star is given as 140.00 which gives a calculated distance to WISEPC J205628.90+145953.3 of 23.30 light years from the Earth or 7.14 parsecs. It is about 15,625,367,456 miles from Earth.

The star is roughly 1,472,720.45 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.

Travel Time to WISEPC J205628.90+145953.3

The time it will take to travel to this star is dependent on how fast you are going. U.G. has done some calculations as to how long it will take going at differing speeds. A note about the calculations, when I'm talking about years, I'm talking non-leap years only (365 days).

The New Horizons space probe is the fastest probe that we've sent into space at the time of writing. Its primary mission was to visit Pluto which at the time of launch (2006), Pluto was still a planet.
