The altitude of stars does not change, no matter where they are seen in the sky. The closest star is about 25 TRILLION miles away from Earth (not counting the sun)

Seen from the moon, the sun, earth, and stars all hang in a black sky.

In astronomy, 'asterisms' are patterns of stars seen in Earth's sky which do not form official constellations.

There's only one difference between the sky seen from the Earth and the sky seen from the moon. The sky seen from the Earth has a moon in it, and the sky seen from the moon has an Earth in it. Other than that, exactly the same objects in the same patterns are seen from both places.

because they float fast in the sky and are barely able to be seen

We can see moon and stars in the sky at night.But sometimes it may not be seen by us because of clouds in the sky.

The stars are in the sky both day and night. During the day our star, the sun, makes our sky so bright that we cannot see the much dimmer stars. At night, when the sky is dark, the light of the stars can be seen.

Stars! A small white marking in the center of a horses forhead is considered a star, and you know what stars in the sky are.

Without a telescope, you can see about 6,000 stars in the night sky.

It may surprise you to know that only about 6,000 stars can be seen without a telescope at any one time in the night sky.

Stars are always in the sky but as the sun shines brightly in the day it can not be seen. They are sometimes not visible at night if it is cloudy or if you are in an area with a lot of light pollution.

The sky is too brightly lit for stars to be seen. At pre-dawn, stars and the moon may just be visible. As the sun rises and the sky brightens, stars and the moon fades away.

The same type of stars that can be observed from most anywhere else in North America.

Saturn is part of our solar system, in which the sun is the only star. In terms of the stars seen at night; they are the same stars seen in the night sky of Earth.

The sky seen on the moon is always black during the day and during the night (with stars) because the moon does not have an atmosphere in which the sun can scatter light.

The thing that accounts for different stars being seen in the sky during different seasons of the year is the tilt of the Earth. This not only creates the seasons, it brings different stars into view at different times.

Stars that are within an angle from the pole of the sky that's equal to your latitude don't rise or set, and are always in your sky.

You can see the sun when the sun is in the sky--don't look directly at it! You can sometimes see the moon, but it's difficult to see stars, perhaps even impossible, when the sun is in the sky.

There is nothing wrong with the stars, either it is day time or there are clouds in the sky. Or the light from cities could affect the visibility, this is called light pollution.

Because the sun is closer to earth than other stars

There are 88 constellations in the night sky. Approximately 6,000 stars in the night sky are bright enough to be seen without optical aid. That's in the total sky, for the whole Earth. The number of stars that are positioned in your sky depends on your location. For example: From the north pole, exactly half of the stars are always in the sky and the other half never are, whereas from the equator, every star is in the sky sooner or later.

Whether during the day or the night, stars are still there in the sky. It is that in daylight, it is impossible to see the stars and the moon due to the glare from the sky. Only during the darkness of night does stars and the moon becomes visible to the human eyes.

yes. comets are shooting stars and fly across the sky in a split second.

Yes, it's one of the brighter stars in the night sky.

The two brightest stars (January 2012) are Venus and Jupiter - which actually are planets, but look like stars. They can be seen both from the northern and the southern hemisphere.

We see the stars in the sky, from our perspective of being here on the Earth. Stars are grouped into galaxies of billions of stars, and there are vast almost-empty spaces between the galaxies.
