The Bortle scale is a nine-level numeric scale that measures the night sky's brightness of a particular location.
Capricornus is one of the constellations of the zodiac.
In astronomy and astrobiology, the circumstellar habitable zone (CHZ), or simply the habitable zone, is the range of orbits around a star within which a planetary surface can support liquid water given sufficient atmospheric pressure.
A constellation is a group of stars that are considered to form imaginary outlines or meaningful patterns on the celestial sphere, typically representing animals, mythological people or gods, mythological creatures, or manufactured devices.
The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is an independent Australian federal government agency responsible for scientific research.
In astronomy, Durchmusterung or Bonner Durchmusterung (BD), is the comprehensive astrometric star catalogue of the whole sky, compiled by the Bonn Observatory (Germany) from 1859 to 1903.
The effective temperature of a body such as a star or planet is the temperature of a black body that would emit the same total amount of electromagnetic radiation.
The Gliese Catalogue of Nearby Stars is a modern star catalogue of stars located within 25 parsecs (81.54 ly) of the Earth.
HD 85512 b is an exoplanet orbiting HD 85512, a K-type main-sequence star approximately 36 light-years from Earth in the constellation of Vela.
Helium (from lit) is a chemical element with symbol He and atomic number 2.
The Henry Draper Catalogue (HD) is an astronomical star catalogue published between 1918 and 1924, giving spectroscopic classifications for 225,300 stars; it was later expanded by the Henry Draper Extension (HDE), published between 1925 and 1936, which gave classifications for 46,850 more stars, and by the Henry Draper Extension Charts (HDEC), published from 1937 to 1949 in the form of charts, which gave classifications for 86,933 more stars.
Hipparcos was a scientific satellite of the European Space Agency (ESA), launched in 1989 and operated until 1993.
HR 7722 b is an exoplanet orbiting the star HR 7722.
HR 7722 c is an exoplanet orbiting the star HR 7722.
Hydrogen is a chemical element with symbol H and atomic number 1.
A K-type main-sequence star (K V), also referred to as an orange dwarf or K dwarf, is a main-sequence (hydrogen-burning) star of spectral type K and luminosity class V. These stars are intermediate in size between red M-type main-sequence stars ("red dwarfs") and yellow G-type main-sequence stars.
The light-year is a unit of length used to express astronomical distances and measures about 9.5 trillion kilometres or 5.9 trillion miles.
This is a list of star systems within 25-30 light years of Earth.
In astronomy, metallicity is used to describe the abundance of elements present in an object that are heavier than hydrogen or helium.
The Milky Way is the galaxy that contains our Solar System.
Neptune is the eighth and farthest known planet from the Sun in the Solar System.
The orbital eccentricity of an astronomical object is a parameter that determines the amount by which its orbit around another body deviates from a perfect circle.
The parsec (symbol: pc) is a unit of length used to measure large distances to astronomical objects outside the Solar System.
The perihelion of any orbit of a celestial body about the Sun is the point where the body comes nearest to the Sun.
The photosphere is a star's outer shell from which light is radiated.
The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) is a research institute of the Smithsonian Institution headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where it is joined with the Harvard College Observatory (HCO) to form the Harvard–Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA).
The solar mass is a standard unit of mass in astronomy, equal to approximately.
Solar radius is a unit of distance used to express the size of stars in astronomy.
A star is type of astronomical object consisting of a luminous spheroid of plasma held together by its own gravity.
A star catalogue (Commonwealth English) or star catalog (American English), is an astronomical catalogue that lists stars.
A star chart or star map, also called a sky chart or sky map, is a map of the night sky.
In astronomy, stellar classification is the classification of stars based on their spectral characteristics.
In astronomy, stellar kinematics is the observational study or measurement of the kinematics or motions of stars through space.
A variable star is a star whose brightness as seen from Earth (its apparent magnitude) fluctuates.
82 G. Eridani (HD 20794, HR 1008, e Eridani) is a star about 20 light years away from Earth in the constellation Eridanus.
