Beautiful orange-red star
Aldebaran star is orange-red star is located in the constellation Taurus. Aldebaran dominates the Taurus and is the fourteenth brightest star in the night sky. The apparent magnitude of the star is 0.87 and the absolute magnitude is -0.65. Aldebaran is a wonderful star that fascinates astronomers and all other star-sky lovers with its beauty. Due to its bright glow, it is easy to find with the naked eye and you do not need a telescope to enjoy the beauty of star . Compared to our Sun – this star is about 44 times larger, and more massive than the Sun by 1.16 times. As you can see, Aldebaran is much bigger than our star. If we had star instead of our Sun, it would be halfway between Sun and Mercury. Of course, then life on Earth would be impossible because of the heat that was coming to us. A beautiful astronomy object.
Star is relatively close to Earth. We see Aldebaran with the naked eye and telescopes. Because of the huge distances of objects in space – yet 65.12 light years is really close to Earth. Star distance can be expressed in other distance measures. Star is 19.96 parsecs or 4,213,960 AI (astronomical units) away from Earth. I hope this information helps you understand the distance between star and Earth. However, don’t be fooled by the statement that this is a star – just near Earth. There are many stars that are much closer than Aldebaran. You can try to understand the distance through the number of years it takes to travel from Earth to that star. We have been traveling at the speed of light at star for 65.12 years. Traveling at a speed of sound for about 58,250,000 years, and by car for about 372,470,000 years. We will probably never get worse because these are incredibly large numbers and distances.
