The star's Galacto-Centric Distance is 7,328.00 Parsecs or 23,901.25 Light Years. The time it will take to travel to this star is dependent on how fast you are going. Where you are born has an impact on what is seen in the sky, e.g., if two people were born on the same day and at the same time but in a different city … The star has a mass about 11.7 times that of the Sun and a radius 185 times solar. It has an absolute magnitude of -4.142 and a bolometric luminosity 12,250 times that of the Sun. A faint star will have a high number. Enif is easy to find because it lies next to the Great Square of Pegasus, a conspicuous asterism outlining the main body of Pegasus. In 1972, it briefly appeared as bright as Altair only to fade again 10 minutes later. Using the original Hipparcos data that was released in 1997, the parallax to the star was given as 4.85000 which gave the calculated distance to Enif as 672.50 light years away from Earth or 206.19 parsecs. It marks the muzzle of the mythical winged horse. Navigational stars have a special role in the field of celestial navigation because they are some of the brightest and most recognizable stars in the sky. Even constellations are related one with each other. satellite operation launched in 1989 for four years. The constellation also contains the Einstein Cross, a gravitationally lensed quasar located behind the lensing galaxy ZW 2237+030 and appearing in four images around the foreground galaxy. With a surface temperature of 4,379 K, Enif is 3,895 times more luminous than the Sun. 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. The constellations that we see today will be different than they were 50,000 years ago or 50,000 years from now. Of course, the most important position is if the fixed star is angular at birth. The figure of 12,957.83 that I have given is based on the value in the Simbad Hipparcos Extended Catalogue at the University of Strasbourg from 2012. Based on the star's spectral type of K2Ibvar , Enif's colour and type is orange to red supergiant star. Enif is the 83rd brightest star in the night sky and is the brightest star in Pegasus based on the Hipparcos 2007 apparent magnitude. Such superflares are extremely rare and their mechanism is not yet understood. The globular cluster is one of the brightest (mag.
