Wolf 1530

Wolf 1530 is a red main sequence dwarf star that can be located in the constellation of Pisces. The description is based on the spectral class. Wolf 1530 is not part of the constellation but is within the borders of the constellation.

Location of Wolf 1530

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 Wolf 1530, the location is 01h 44m 58.52 and +16° 20` 39.7 .

Radial Velocity and Proper Motion of Wolf 1530

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 -428.00 miliarcseconds/year towards the north and -737.00 miliarcseconds/year east if we saw them in the horizon.

The Radial Velocity, that is the speed at which the star is moving away/towards the Sun is -37.00 km/s . 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.

Physical Properties (Colour) of Wolf 1530

Wolf 1530 has a spectral type of M4V C. This means the star is a red main sequence dwarf star.

Distance to Wolf 1530

The Parallax of the star is given as 79.70 which gives a calculated distance to Wolf 1530 of 40.92 light years from the Earth or 12.55 parsecs. It would take a spaceship travelling at the speed of light, 40.92 years to get there. We don't have the technology or spaceship that can carry people over that distance yet.

The star is roughly 2,588,605.28 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.
