The less a star appears to move the farther it is from earth is true.
This phenomenon is due to something called parallax. If you hold your finger at arms length and close your right eye, then close your left eye and open your right, your finger appears to move, even though you are holding it still. It is because your point of observation has changed. If you hold your finger closer to your face, the distance it appears to move becomes greater. Now imagine the sun being the center of your face, and each eye as an opposite point on the earth's orbit. Stars that are closer to the earth will appear to move as compared to stars that are farther away.
Mercury appears very close to sunrise or sunset.
The Moon is appears close to the Earth because the Earth has a lot of mass, and the more mass it has the more gravity it has. Gravity keeps the Moon close to the Earth.In a relative sense, the moon is close to the earth. On an average of 240,000 miles or 400,000 km. The sun, which appears the same size, is 93,000,000 miles (150,000,000km) away - about 400 times farther. A few of the planets can be closer, but even at their closest, they appear as little more than points.
No. Stars in a constellation appear close to each other, but the are NOT gravitationally bound.
because its for from stars
The moon appears large to us because we are very close to it.
just like me longing to be close to you.
No, a constellation is not a galaxy. A galaxy is an enormous group of stars that are connected by gravity. A constellation is a pattern in stars that appear to an observer on the earth to be near each other. Essentially, human beings played "connect the dots" with the stars as they appear to us on earth, but the fact that two stars appear close in our night sky does not mean that they are actually close to each other in outer space.
As we are close to so it appears large, while other stars are far away This video should give you an idea, look from 0:30 onwards
Mars appears bright in our sky because it's so close to us. It's not a star, by the way. It's a planet. Stars will appear to twinkle when you look at them, planets hold steady.
That happens when the individual stars are too faint, and too close together, to be seen as individual stars.
A small group of stars that appear to be close together are often known a cluster. Technically its an asterism.
An optical double are two stars that appear to be close together from our perspective on the earth but are in reality far apart and not binary stars.
That's because the Sun is so close to us compared with other stars.
We cannot see the distance between these stars. This is why the stars in each constellation look like they are close together.
Lower. The higher a satellite is, the more stationary it appears. for a satellite close to Earth, the period is a matter of hours, but for a satellite farther away, days.
The pole star also called "Dhruv tara", named so because it is in the direction of North Pole. All the stars appear to rotate about a point very close to the Pole star, which appears to be almost stationary.
Since Mars is so close to the Earth (astronomically speaking), then stars would still appear to be in the same relative position, with VEEEEEEERY little difference. Because of the thinner atmosphere distorting the light from the stars, they would appear brighter and clearer.
The brightness of stars varies because of many reasons. 1. The Distance. Some Stars are far away, and the light takes longer to reach us, so the star only appears to be darker then stars around it that may appear brighter. 2.The size. Some stars are massive, and appear brighter then others simply due to their size. 3. It isn't a star. what you may be looking at isn't a star. You may be seeing a satellite, quasar, or even a close white dwarf or neutron star. 4. Finally, you may be looking at the milky way. in which case, they all appear to be brighter then stars outside it. This also falls under distance.
Yes, the stars do change position relative to each other. The effect is most noticeable for those that are fairly close to us.
Stars give out light. The sun is a relatively small star but it's a a lot close than the others making it appear bigger. Stars are explosions and give out light.
If a star has some parallax - if its position against the background stars appears to be a teeny bit different in January than in July - then we know it's pretty close, and we can calculate precisely how far away it is.
In the King James version, the word 'then' appears 2,169 times. Very close, the word "then" appears 2,168 times in the KJV Bible in 2,115 verses.
The main reason that the sun appears so large and bright to us is that we're soclose to it. The next nearest star is about 270 thousand times farther away thanthe sun is, and all the others are even farther than that.
A line that isn't there but appears to be. eg. Like short dashes close to each other on a page could appear to be a line but it isnt
