Stars from an astronomical perspective are made of helium, hydrogen, and oxygen. They burn for anything from a few million to tens of billions of years. Stars are huge, fiery balls of gas that give off heat and light. This is accomplished by the fusion of the nuclei of two hydrogen atoms to form a helium atom, in a process creatively called NUCLEAR FUSION. The sun is an example of the closest star to our planet. The nearest star, apart from the Sun, is over 40 trillion km (25 trillion miles) away. Order of the stages of a typical star: White Dwarf | Main Chain | RED GIANTS! Biggest star: Aldeberan, located on the tip of the horn of the CONSTELLATION (apparent picture in the night sky made of stars and other visible celestial objects) called Taurus the Bull. The hottest, brightest stars are over 40,000 degrees Celsius.The surface temperature of the coolest star is below 3,500 degrees Celsius. You can see them in the night sky and they appear as points of light that can be yellow, red, blue, orange, and white. A massive, dead star can form a BLACK HOLE, which is a celestial object with a gravitational force so great that nothing, not even light, can escape its pull.
Stars are suns like our Sun, only very far away. There are perhaps a trillion stars in our own Milky Way galaxy, and perhaps a trillion galaxies other than our own scattered throughout the universe.

Our Sun is perhaps a little larger than the "average" star, but certainly not higher than about the top third.

Put in Star signs. There's PISCES (stars), VIRGO (stars), ARIES (stars), CANCER (stars), SAGITTARIUS (stars), LIBRA (stars), GEMINI (stars), LEO (stars), SCORPIO (stars), CAPRICORN (stars), AQUARIUS (stars), and TAURUS (stars). I think that's all the Star signs. Good luck!

i think its cus of the dead stars that are dead and their stars that are stars which are dead that make them stars.

It is a constellation of stars (or a cluster or a galaxy).

Shooting stars are not stars. They are bits of dirt and dust that burn up in our atmosphere, briefly making them look like stars. Most of that is debris is from comets or others bits of dirt in space, but they are not stars and were not stars. So stars do not become shooting stars.

SHOOTING STARS ARE NOT STARS!!! They are meteorites burning up in the atmosphere.

Red stars are cooler than blue stars

Yellow stars are hotter than red stars.

No. Red stars are the coolest while blue stars are the hottest.

Blue stars are referred to as Sirius stars. The Sirius stars are referred to as the hottest stars in the solar system.

stars, the planets have to get heat from stars

There are 50 stars in nine rows on the American flag. The number of stars per row are:First row: 6 starsSecond row: 5 starsThird row: 6 starsFourth row: 5 starsFifth row: 6 starsSixth row: 5 starsSeventh row: 6 starsEighth row: 5 starsNinth and last row: 6 starsThus, there are 5 rows of 6 stars and 4 rows of 5 stars.

No, most stars are not giants. The group with more stars is Main Sequence Stars.

No, stars are always there. But in the daytime it is too bright to see most stars.No, stars are always there. But in the daytime it is too bright to see most stars.No, stars are always there.

The stars that are red are the coolest of all stars temperature wise. The hottest stars are blue, and medium cool stars are white or yellow.

actually every type, from old stars to new stars to stars in the G-class to stars in the M-class :)

No, not all dwarf stars are failed stars. Only brown dwarfs are called "failed stars".

This question is FAR, FAR too general. Stars in the sky? Stars in a constellation? Stars in movies? Stars in TV shows? Stars on the radio? More specificity is needed.

The main sequence stars are stars that fuse hydrogen, so the stars that have left the main sequence are the ones that have basically run out of hydrogen. They are the Red Giant stars, Supergiant stars and White Dwarf stars.

we have stars because that is part of our world it has been their for years and this is why we have our stars
