According to Mr. Tyson, Krypton orbits the red dwarf star LHS 2520, which is cooler and smaller than our sun, 27.1 light-years from Earth, in the constellation Corvus the raven, in the southern sky not far from Virgo and Hydra.

DC Comics, the publisher of the Superman series, says, "By applying real-world science to this story Neil deGrasse Tyson has forever changed Superman's place in history. Now fans will be able to look up at the night's sky and say, that's where Superman was born."

Mr. Tyson said, "As a native of Metropolis (New York City), I was delighted to help Superman, who has done so much for my city over all these years."
