Our own Sun is the brightest star and therefore has the lowest of all magnitudes, -26.74. Lambda Tauri (λ Tau, λ Tauri) is a triple star system in the constellation Taurus. NGC 1435 was discovered by the German astronomer Wilhelm Tempel. This suggests that the pair Lambda Tauri AB form a semidetached binary with the secondary filling its Roche lobe, giving it a distorted shape. Considered as a pair of stars, the two components are designated Gamma Tauri A (officially named Prima Hyadum /ˌpraɪmə ˈhaɪədəm/, the traditional name for the system)[13] and B. γ Tauri (Latinised to Gamma Tauri) is the system's Bayer designation. However with the 2007 release of updated Hipparcos files, the radius is now calculated at being round 11.99. [16] It approved the name Prima Hyadum for the component Gamma Tauri A on 5 September 2017 and it is now so included in the List of IAU-approved Star Names. If you need the diameter of the star, you just need to multiple the radius by 2. You can decline to give a name which if that is the case, the comment will be attributed to a random star. The stars may be of equal mass, unequal mass where one star is stronger than the other or be in groups orbiting a central point which doesn't necessarily have to be a star. Based upon parallax measurements, Gamma Tauri is approximately 154 light-years from the Sun. [18], Gamma Tauri presents as a spectral class G8 or K0[2][3] giant star with an apparent magnitude of +3.65. Exoplanets. The star is moving -23.42 ± 0.20 milliarcseconds/year towards the north and 115.46 ± 0.32 milliarcseconds/year east if we saw them in the horizon. The orbital plane of this component is nearly coplanar with the orbit of Lambda Tauri AB, differing by no more than 7°. [7] The star is radiating about 85 times the luminosity of the Sun[3] and has 2.7 times the Sun's mass. The file is dated 2000 so any differences between this and any other source will be down to the actual source from where the information came from. has done some calculations as to how long it will take going at differing speeds. All stars like planets orbit round a central spot, in the case of planets, its the central star such as the Sun. The source of the information if it has a Hip I.D. Proper Motion details the movements of these stars and are measured in milliarcseconds. [7], The primary component has a stellar classification of B3 V, making this a massive B-type main sequence star. The location of the giant 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. Its nothing to fear as the stars are so far apart, they won't collide in our life-time, if ever. NGC 1647 is another open cluster in Taurus, located between the bull’s horns. An inner region of the star became depleted by the conversion of carbon into nitrogen during the nuclear fusion process, and this region was later exposed when the outer envelope of the star was lost. Gamma Tauri (γ Tauri, abbreviated Gamma Tau, γ Tau) is either a solitary, binary or double star (the Washington Double Star Catalog notes it as a "Dubious Double" or "Bogus Binary"[12]) that marks the tip of the "V" in the constellation of Taurus. It has about half the mass of the Sun. It has an apparent magnitude of 13.0 and is approximately 440 light years distant from the solar system. It is purely that the distance was recalculated. It has an apparent magnitude of 6.4. Luminosity is the amount of energy that a star pumps out and its relative to the amount that our star, the Sun gives out. [7] The side of the secondary facing the more massive star is being heated by an additional 1,440 K, which produces a rotational effect that causes the strength of the secondary's spectral lines to vary over the course of its orbit. This star has passed through the main sequence phase is now a red clump giant, meaning it is using nuclear fusion of helium at its core to provide energy. The number of A.U. Age estimates for Gamma Tauri range from 430 million to 530 million years. If you used the 1997 Parallax value, you would get an absolute magnitude of 0.28 If you used the 2007 Parallax value, you would get an absolute magnitude of 0.18. Using the 2007 distance, the star is roughly 10,216,224.67 Astronomical Units from the Earth/Sun give or take a few. is from Simbad, the Hipparcos data library based at the University at Strasbourg, France. In stellar evolutionary terms, the more massive primary should be the first to reach the subgiant stage. A faint star will have a high number. However, the cause of such a fully convective behavior in a main sequence star of this mass is unclear. [17] Consequently, the Chinese name for γ Tauri itself is 畢宿四 (Bì Xiù sì), "the Fourth Star of Net". [7] It, along with δ Librae, were the first stars on which rotational line broadening was observed, by Frank Schlesinger in 1909. An Astronomical Unit is the distance between Earth and the Sun. Gamma Tauri, Gam Tau, Hyadum I, Gamma Tau, HD 27371, HIP 20205, HR 1346, 54 Tauri, 54 Tau, BD+15 612: Spectral Type: G8III: Constellation's Main Star: Yes: Multiple Star System: Yes: Star Type: Giant Star: Colour: Yellow: Galaxy: Milky Way: Constellation: Taurus: Absolute Magnitude: 0.28 / 0.18 : Visual / Apparent Magnitude: 3.65: Naked Eye Visible: Yes - Magnitudes: Right Ascension (R.A.) Gamma Tauri presents as a spectral class G8 or K0 giant star with an apparent magnitude of +3.65. After correcting for limb darkening, this gives the stellar radius as 13.4 times the radius of the Sun. The value comes from the Hipparcos Extended Catalog. The Right Ascension is how far expressed in time (hh:mm:ss) the star is along the celestial equator.

[6], The angular diameter of this star has been measured using the CHARA array to 2% accuracy. The WGSN decided to attribute proper names to individual stars rather than entire multiple systems. NGC 1647 . It has over seven times the mass of the Sun[13] and 6.4 times the Sun's radius. [15], The third component, λ Tau C, is orbiting the inner pair over a 33.025 day period with an eccentricity of roughly 0.15. Using the most recent figures given by the 2007 Hipparcos data, the star is 161.55 light years away from us. Based upon parallax measurements from the Hipparcos mission, the distance to this system is approximately 480 light-years (150 parsecs). The New Horizons space probe is the fastest probe that we've sent into space at the time of writing. If the R.A. is positive then its eastwards. Age estimates for Gamma Tauri range from 430 million[3] to 530 million years. A name is preferred even if its a random made up one by yourself. Prima Hyadum estimated radius has been calculated as being 11.45 times bigger than the Sun. [6] With its large size and low projected rotational velocity of 4 km s−1,[10] it takes about 253 days to complete a rotation.[9]. A possible explanation for this is a loss of mass by the star some time in the past. It has been known to produce widely incorrect figures. It should not be taken as though the star is moving closer or further away from us. The star has been identified as being a multi-star system, one in which there is at least one star in close orbit to another star or two or more stars orbiting a central point. The primary member, λ Tau A, undergoes a decrease of 0.435 ± 0.050 in magnitude during an eclipse, while the secondary component, λ Tau B, decreases by 0.09–0.10 in magnitude. The time it will take to travel to this star is dependent on how fast you are going. Its primary mission was to visit Pluto which at the time of launch (2006), Pluto was still a planet. The star's Galacto-Centric Distance is 7,445.00 Parsecs or 24,282.86 Light Years. Magnitude, whether it be apparent/visual or absolute magnitude is measured by a number, the smaller the number, the brighter the Star is. In 2016, the IAU organized a Working Group on Star Names (WGSN)[15] to catalog and standardize proper names for stars. Alternatively, the star may have undergone a period of convective mixing, bringing the carbon-depleted material to the surface. Multiple star in the constellation Taurus. [6] By comparison, the age of the Hyades cluster is about 625 million years with an error margin of 50 million years. In 2007, Hipparcos data was revised with a new parallax of 20.19000 which put Prima Hyadum at a distance of 161.55 light years or 49.53 parsecs. This star has passed through the main sequence phase is now a red clump giant, meaning it is using nuclear fusion of helium at its core to provide energy. It is a member of, and located within about 2.5 parsecs of the center of, the Hyades star cluster, the nearest open cluster to the Sun. Based on the spectral type (G8III) of the star, the star's colour is yellow . [9], The secondary companion has a stellar classification of A4 IV,[3] suggesting that it is a subgiant star that has nearly exhausted the supply of hydrogen at its core and is in the process of evolving into a giant star. Hence the enlarged radius of the secondary must be caused by a means other than the star's age. The source of the info is Simbad. The items in red are values that I've calculated so they could well be wrong. The information was obtained as of 12th Feb 2017. [6] Their orbital plane is inclined by around 76° to the line of sight from the Earth,[8] so it is being viewed from nearly edge on and the two stars form an Algol-like eclipsing binary system. [14] Lambda Tauri A is rotating rapidly with a projected rotational velocity of 85 km s−1. is the number of times that the star is from the Earth compared to the Sun. Based on the spectral type, we can deduce that the surface temperature of the star is in the order of between between 5,000 and 6,000K based on the notes from Harvard University. More information can be found on my dedicated multiple star systems page. [13] The mean physical separation between these two stars is estimated at 21.91 times the radius of the Sun, or 0.1 Astronomical Units. Comments may be merged or altered slightly such as if an email address is given in the main body of the comment. [13], In Chinese, 畢宿 (Bì Xiù), meaning Net, refers to an asterism consisting of Gamma Tauri, Epsilon Tauri, Delta³ Tauri, Delta¹ Tauri, Alpha Tauri (Aldebaran), 71 Tauri and Lambda Tauri. U.G. The map was generated using Night Vision, an awesome free application by Brian Simpson. The star can be seen with the naked eye, that is, you don't need a telescope/binoculars to see it.

[14], Gamma Tauri bore the traditional name Hyadum I,[11] which is Latin for "First of the Hyades". In the Calendarium of Al Achsasi Al Mouakket, this star was designated Sadr al Tauri, which was translated into Latin as Pectus Tauri, meaning "the bull chest". There's no register feature and no need to give an email address if you don't need to. The combined brightness of the pair varies from magnitude +3.37 to +3.91 as first one star and then the other pass in front of its companion. The Radial Velocity, that is the speed at which the star is moving away/towards the Sun is 38.56000 km/s with an error of about 0.09 km/s . A note about the calculations, when I'm talking about years, I'm talking non-leap years only (365 days). [12] In 1848, the light from this system was found to vary periodically and it was determined to be an eclipsing binary system—the third such discovered.
[6], A conundrum with this system is the large radius of the secondary star. The constellations that we see today will be different than they were 50,000 years ago or 50,000 years from now. The Galacto-Centric Distance is the distance from the star to the Centre of the Galaxy which is Sagittarius A*. Apparent Magnitude is also known as Visual Magnitude. In the case of a star, its the galactic centre. [6], The spectrum of Lambda Tauri A shows an under abundance of carbon relative to the norm for this category of star.
