Facts on Barnard's Star
temp.: 3,236 F
age: about 10,000,000,000
mass: 0.144low mass red dwarf about 6 light-years away from earth. The star is named after the american astronomer E.E. Barnard. Although he wasn’t the first to observe it (It first appeared on Harvard’s plates in 1888 and 1890) it is not visible with the naked eye. It is not as bright in visible light than it is in infrared. It is in the main sequence. Barnard’s star was an emerald nebula.
a cloud of hydrogen, helium gas, plasma, and dust in outer space
a large mass that forms by contraction out of the gas of a molecular cloud in the star medium. Early stage last around 10,000,000 years.
Main Sequence Star
fusing hydrogen atoms to form helium atoms. Most stars are in the main sequence.
Red Giant Star
Red giant is the beginning of the dying stages for a star
Faint luminosity and very dense. the suns mass and the earths volume is comparable to a white dwarf.
