A distant Sun?

I am a layman in this field, I am a proffesional senior analyst in the computer world.

However; A friend of mine, who thinks he has got clairvoyance, has asked me to post this to one of the biggest astronomers forum on the internet, which I belive you are.

Does this make any sense at all??

He claims it should be something that astronomers understand and it should describe "the position of a distant Sun about 5-6 Trillion Light years ahead."

Anyone?

5 - 6 triliion Ly way is a VERY long way away...

Our own galaxy is what 100,000 ly across? The Andromeda galaxy is only 2.2 million Ly away...

So a single star 5 trillion Ly away isn't really going to be visible.

Thanks all for your replies,

I have shown my friend this now and he is pondering about it and greets you for, as he says "We have at least tried".

I wonder though: Did that string of data actually mean something astronomically, or was it just yibberish?

Thanks,

Mikael

Objects in the night sky from Earth are normally located by using a method of Right Ascension (RA) and Declination (Dec), so I would expect to see RA and Dec figures for the object's position. The string you've given is not that.

OK, Thanks he is sitting here beside me and I have told him this is it.

Thanks to all of you who have spent valuable thinking time on this.

I assure you I won't bother you again.

Thanks,

Mikael

Please do not be bothered to much at the idle banter that interjects serious answers, there is many a time we go off at tangents. I think it is excellent that you ask around rather than taking statements at face value. If you ever have an astronomical question please do not hesitate to ask.
