How can you tell stars from planets

By Riley Lubben


One way to see the difference is the way things move in the sky.

Planets move is complicated paths. Stars looked like they are in fixed positions.

Also from our point of view it looks like the stars are painted onto a gigantic sphere that surrounds the earth.

Answer to my Question

When you are looking into the sky and the light twinkles, changes colors or changes brightness it is more than likely a star. Planets don't change color or twinkle.
