Why do planet not twinkle?

Twinkling is due to atmospheric disturbances that scatter light around. For a star, which appears as a small point of light in the sky, the light gets scattered around over an area bigger than the star appears in the sky, and so the star appears to rapidly twinkle. For a planet, which appears as a small disc, the light gets scattered around over an area about the same size as the planet does, so the planet doesn't appear to twinkle as much. Planets can twinkle if there's a lot of atmospheric disturbance. Planets also appear to twinkle when low down in the horizon, as the light has to pass through more atmosphere (and hence faces more disturbance) than when the planet is overhead. The twinkling effect is worst with Saturn as that is the naked-eye planet that cuts the smallest figure in the sky.

How are stars and planets the same and how do they differ?

Similarities: Stars and planets can appear the same - like pinpoints of light in the night sky. Differences: Planets are rock or gas, and do not glow by themselves but reflect the light of stars which illuminate them. Stars fuse hydrogen into helium and give off enormous amounts of energy, some in the visible range. Stars are MUCH bigger than planets.

Why is it difficult to make a direct image of a planet around another star?

To get a direct image of a planet, we need to gather the light it is reflecting. Planets in our own solar system are much closer and thus, they appear bigger - and they can often be found far enough away from where the Sun appears to be, so that the Sun's light doesn't affect the imaging effort.However, when a star is many light years away, and a planet is around it, it will appear very, very close to its parent star - which is essentially blinding it out.Imaging trying to gather the light reflected off a grain of sand which is sitting next to a large flashlight shining in your face.
