Where are stars located in the universe?
Stars are scattered all across our universe but guess what? there are no stars in our solar system besides the sun!

The largest known star is VY Canis Majoris [See related questions] This is the largest star known to man, but there could possibly be far larger stars. It is a red hypergian…t in the constellation Canis Major. The star is 3 billion km away from earth. If it were to be placed at the center of our solar system, its outer shell would reach beyond the orbit of Saturn and very near to Jupiter's orbit. It is a very unstable star, and is predicted to explode as a hypernova, wiping out any life within a couple of light years away. This could happen any time in the next 100,000 years, and thankfully there are no hypergiants close enough to have this catastrophic effect on Earth.
it's the blue hypergiants, like Eta Carinae and R136a1, which are probably the hottest stars in the Universe. These are estimated to be around 40,000 degrees Kelvin.
No. It just looks that way because we're so close to it. But after astronomers measured the size of a lot of stars, they recognized that the sun seems to be a very average siz…e ... not spectacularly bigger or smaller than most of the others they've been able to measure.
Someone who studies the stars and planets using scientific equipment including telescopes is called astronomer.
The answer has to be estimated; for many reasons no one can ever know the exact numbers, whatever that might mean in this context. Estimates of the number of galaxies in the u…niverse range from about 170 billion to one trillion. One trillion is one thousand millions. Estimates of the number of stars range from around 70 sextillion to 300 sextillion. Seventy sextillion is 7 followed by 22 zeros. 300 sextillion is 3 followed by 23 zeros. Some estimate as high as 10 to the power 24, which is one followed by 24 zeros. You might think that 22, 23 and 24 are small numbers here, until you begin to consider that every single one of them represents a power of ten. The number is far beyond anything that any human mind can grasp on anything close to a practical level.
Nobody can really tell. There are an estimated 100,000,000,000,000,000,000 (100 quintrillion) probably more. Of those it's estimated to be about 3,000,000,000,000,000 (3 tho…usand trillion) will be hypergiants.

As the question specifies brightness, the brightest star in the Universe is our Sun - because it is the closest star to us. The most luminous star is another question: See r…elated question.
Haha, everywhere. The universe is, so far as we can tell, a self-contained system which bends in on itself. Meaning if you were to travel in any direction for a very long ti…me (veeeeery long, billions of years even at the speed of light) you'd eventually come back to the same exact spot. The question "what is outside of the universe", it would seem, as hard as it is to comprehend, is not a valid question. Footnote There are theories that involve the existence of parallel universes, and these theories are not just zany science fiction creations. One such theory helps to explain the amazing weakness of gravity (compared to the other basic forces) by showing how gravity may be spread out over the non-observable dimensions. Membrane theory also allows for the existence of other universes that actually overlap our own-- they are not merely collections of galaxies that are extremely far away. Hmm. I often wonder about where we are as far as everything goes. We are in a place that we may just not be able to comprehend. I understand (or at least I think I do) the vastness of space and the idea that size basically means nothing...we dont know where we are. Nobody does. We as humans on earth are like a pair of fish in a pond in San Fransisco....they have no idea about anything going on in Florida and they never will. While there is much going on in Florida, these two simple fish are just.... fish, and that limits them to understanding the complexity of such an idea. We are these fish. The answer is there somewhere as to what lies "after our universe" but it also does not...for example what is after that...and after that ...and so on and so on....it basically never ends because our minds need a logical reason for something as immense as this to end...and have a place to start after the other has ended. Its too much..and I cant ever get it...I would give anything to know. There is so much out there in space..so much distance, so much darkness....I cant even begin to guess on any of it. My mind says that there is something else after all we can imagine throughout space and time. Very frustrating as it is such a clear and reasonable question that everyone can grasp...yet the answer is entirely unknown to all. In space there is no up, no down, no left or right...time does not exist or have the need to...it only exists because it does. It is everything and nothing, entirely unknown in terms of any size and complexity. We are humans that know a whole lot, and know absolutely nothing at the same time.
NO, the Sun is not the hottest star. The hottest stars are the blue and white ones. The Sun is a medium sized star. The reason we find it so hot is because it is the nearest s…tar to us
No. Not a stellar expert here, but stars come in all sizes and colors. Red giants, main sequences, blue normals, white dwarves, super novas, and others. White dwarves are smal…ler than planets and invisible without a telescope. The Dog Star is an example of this, but somehow the Dogon tribesmen of Africa have known of its existence without telescopes for some time, and its exact position in earth's sky. Black holes are invisible even with the most powerful telescope, and their exisistence was proved mathematically by Stephen Hawking. Yes. "Shining", emitting light and electromagnetic radiation generated by nuclear fusion, are the criteria for being a star.
Stars are located in outer space. The sun is our closest star. Other stars are much more farther away. But, some bright lights in the sky are not always stars. They could be a… passing airplane or even a space station, or a planet, or even a very far away galaxy. There are billions of stars in our galaxy, and billions of billions in the universe.
M class stars are the most common and account for around 76.5% of all stars that are on main sequence.. They are normally red dwarfs, but can include red giants and red super-…giants like Betelgeuse and Antares.
The most recent estimates place the number of stars in the observable universe at around 1023. That's a 1 with twenty-three zeros after it. More precisely, that would be 100 s…extillion. "The universe is so big, it doesn't even make sense to talk about how big it is."
In the observable universe there are about 10 billion galaxies.Assuming galaxies have an average of 100 billion stars each, theobservable universe has about 1 billion trillion… stars (or1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000).
Answer 1: Hundreds of billions of billions. Updated: As of 2009, it was estimated to be around 1023 stars in the observable universe. However, it was recently discovered… that we may have been missing most stars of the red dwarf variety and now it is beginning to look like the 1023 figure would now have to be tripled. So its about.... 3,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
