The relative position of the earth. The earth changes its position as it orbits around the sun. As its position changes, the ''apparent'' positions of the stars change. This is also why some constellations appear to be farther north or south or whether they are even visible or not (depending on your location) at certain times of the year. And while the axial tilt doesn't change or wobble enough to be noticeable to us, its angle, relative to the sun, affects our view of space.

Irregular periods or a hormonal imbalance.

All the stars and the Sun are moving through space in different directions and at different speeds. Over long times (to a person) they change their positions in the sky and the constellations change.

The question cannot be answered. Stars do not "appear" at a different times on different days.

Stars do rise and set just like our sun, a star. While the rising and setting position of our sun changes daily, the position of other stars when they rise or set does not change. The times that they rise or set will change each day.

If you have a rabbit you should change it's cage about every month or two. Or if it starts tok look dirty change it Did this help?

To tell the time by the stars you need star maps for each month or a "planisphere". Setting and rising times of planets and stars are also found in tables and lists. By observation of a selected star one can then determine real time.

Once a month, the exact times change per woman.

It will change your periods but they will still be there but you will just have them at different times of the month.

well remember we are in a galaxy that spins just like earth... so as the earth spins you see different stars and when the galaxy spins you have different stars... basically the sky moves over night...

White Dwarfs are produced by stars 0.5 to 8 times the mass of the Sun, and Neutron Stars by stars 8 to 25 times the mass of the Sun.

57 times in a 28-day (lunar) month.

2 times a month = two months, 16 times a day equals 16 days...

Two (2) times in a month.

Stars have to be 100 times more massive than our sun in order to become a black hole. When the star dies, it explodes violently (which is called a supernova) and then gravitational collapse causes it to form into a black hole.

When you stop using the Nuva Ring, the timing of your cycle may change. You may or may not keep getting your period at the same time of the month.

the collapse of stars that are about 4 times bigger than the sun. it collapses so greatly that nothing in the universe can stop it, and it becomes a black hole.

She wouldn't get her period three times in a month - it's not biologically possible. A woman may experience vaginal bleeding for a number of reasons, including irregular hormones and STD's. If she's concerned she should see her doctor to have the problem investigated - identify the cause.

No, the sun is not the hottest of all stars. There are stars that are up to 7 times hotter than the sun.
