Answer Just chance. Some stars are very close to each other. Some are in binary systems that are two stars rotating around each other. Some are so close that one… rips the material of ft he other. The center of our galaxy is full of stars that are relatively close. We just happen to be on the outer edge of our galaxy where there aren't many stars.
69000 light years
At a distance of about 4.2421 light years is Proxima Centauri our nearest stellar neighbor outside our own solar system.
approx. 291 miles
At this point there is no edge of the universe, mostly due to the fact that the universe is expanding rapidly (moving outward). (Answer By William Hackman) I bel…ieve there is a edge in this universe, but there is no proof on how far it is right now. Our universe has been expanding for a long time, but later on it will start contracting (moving inward) maybe faster than light. And then we'll have a new Earth and a new universe and have only good and living, not bad or death.
Barnard's Star is approximately 6 light years away.
i think stars are so far because there in space
No-one Can Really Prove If There Is Even An "Edge Of The Universe" So The Question Can't Really Be Answerd... ...<3
there is only 1 universe...although there is many galaxies contained in this universe.
about 45 mins
There is no end of the universe. The universe goes on for ever and ever.
Who wants to be a millionaire with Eddie Macguire says that it is 4 times as bright but i can not give a scientific reason for this answer
They are all different distances, and measured in parralax.
Please specify the star you're asking about.
In fact, what we call "sky" is our atmosphere whose blue colour is due to the concentration of gases, mainly oxygen of course, and the blue colour is due to the wavelenght tha…t oxygen lets the sunlight to cross. Suppose that the atmosphere was invisible, clear, not blue. Stars and planets would have the same distance. Some are very near to us, relatively to our galaxy, the Milky Way. But other stars and planets in our galaxy or even more distant ones are very far away from our planet. Some stars that you are watching at night may not exist anymore, and what you see is only its light still travelling onto space due to the huge distance they were before they turned into a dwarf star and ceased to glow.
