Leo is a constellation not a single star, but that doesn't really affect the answer.

The reason is that the Earth orbits the Sun. The night sky varies mainly

because the Sun appears in different areas of the sky during the year.

when the star is hot it appers to be blue meaning the temperture of the star is what chages the color

The temperature of the star itself - and Earth's atmosphere.

Many Star Wars focused encyclopedias provide information on all of the ships that appear throughout the movie franchise. Wikipedia and the StarWarsPedia are some of the better sources as they are documented by fans of the series.

The north star, known as Polaris sit above our north pole. To people in the Northern Hemisphere it is the only star in the sky that doesn't appear to move throughout the night. All of the other stars seems to move in a counter clockwise motion around Polaris because of the rotation of the earth.

They don't. Other things being equal (especially if the size and distance is the same), a hotter star will appear brighter, and in a different color.

They move accross the sky during the night due to our planets rotation. They also appear at different points in the night sky throughout the year due to our orbit around the sun and our relative position with the sun. This is where star signs come into it, your star sign is the costellation that the sun was in front of when you were born (but in reality this has shifted a bit so is not really the same as the dates you see quoted in the astrology column).

Because it is the closest star to the earth and it can be seen so easily.

No. While planets and stars may appear similar in the night sky, they are quite different.

The color of emission nebulae is a result of the predominate gas or gasses in that nebulae. Different gasses glow in different colors. Blue, as the color of the star, indicates how hot the star is.

Yes. Stars appear to have different brightness for two main reasons: 1 The actual "luminosity" of the star itself. (That depends mainly on the star's temperature and surface area.) 2 The distance of the star from Earth.

you have to find a star and then catch the star and you will become invincible

Because from Earth, the constellations appear to be consistent in shape, and are thus identifiable by eye. Some, like the North Star, are in a consistent position throughout the year.

By subdividing science into many different areas, it allows specialization in one area over a general knowledge. For instance, Does a scientist need to understand how a star works, or how to identify different rocks, in order to study bacteria?

No. He did, however, appear alongside the crew of TNG in the movie Star Trek Generations.

The planets move in their own trajectory which is different than the stars in the background. All the stars appear to circle the North star.

A cooler star could actually appear brighter than a hotter star because in is not just about the temperature is also depends which one is closer or further away from Earth. Therefore if a cooler star was closer to Earth than a hotter star then the cooler one would appear brighter.

As the Earth spins on it axis, the stars appear to move across the sky as we see them from the Earths surface. The pole star does not shift much from its position throughout the night though. This is because the axis about which the Earth is turning is pointing in its direction, towards the north (and out towards the south too).
