WOH G64

WOH G64 is red supergiant star that is not located in our galaxy but is in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy. The star can not be seen by the naked eye, you need a telescope to see it.

Location of WOH G64

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 WOH G64, the location is 04h 55m 10 and -68 20` 29.81 .

Physical Properties (Colour, Radius) of WOH G64

WOH G64 has a spectral type of M5I. This means the star is a red supergiant star.

WOH G64 has been calculated as 1,540.00 times bigger than the Sun.The Sun's radius is 695,800km, therefore the star's radius is an estimated 1,071,532,000.00.km. If you need the diameter of the star, you just need to multiple the radius by 2.

WOH G64 Apparent and Absolute Magnitudes

WOH G64 has an apparent magnitude of 18.46 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.
