Wiki info

On September 9, 2012, Voyager 2 was 99. 077 AU (1. 48217×1010 km; 9. 2098×109 mi) from the Earth and 99. 504 AU (1. 48856×1010 km; 9. 2495×109 mi) from the Sun; and traveling at 15. 436 km/s (34,530 mph) (relative to the Sun) and traveling outward at about 3. 256 AU per year. [64] Sunlight takes 13. 73 hours to get to Voyager 2. The brightness of the Sun from the spacecraft is magnitude -16. 7. [64]Voyager 2 is heading in the direction of the constellation Telescopium. [dubious – discuss][64] (To compare, Proxima Centauri, the closest star to the Sun, is about 4. 2 light-years (or 2. 65×105 AU) distant. Voyager 2's current relative velocity to the Sun is 15. 436 km/s (55,570 km/h; 34,530 mph). This calculates as 3. 254 AU per year, about 10% slower than Voyager 1. At this velocity, 81,438 years would pass before Voyager 2 reaches the nearest star, Proxima Centauri, were the spacecraft traveling in the direction of that star. Voyager 2 will need about 19,390 years at its current velocity to travel a complete light year.
