the "big dipper" about stars

Introduction

In this article you will learn about stars. (not the pop stars, famous stars super stars...etc It is about stars you see at night). You will also learn about the sun, constellations, the life cycle of stars and some other cool and awesome stuff.

Look its the sun!

The sun is helpful to Earth and

other things in our galaxy,but

did you Know it was a star? The

sun is made of 72% hydrogen,

and 26% helium. If the sun was

any closer we would burn. If the

sun was any farther we would

freeze. The sun is perfect were

it is. One day, the sun may blow up and

turn into a black whole. All the planets

orbit around the sun. The sun is

very inportant.

Connect the dots

Constellations are groups of stars that make an object in the sky that we can see from Earth. Some of the constellations are called Orion or Hercules, Orion's belt...etc. These constellations were named by Greek people. If you look up in the night sky you may find a constellation. Constellations are fascinating when you see them.

Try rocketing to this!

The closest star system to us

is Alpha Centauri, but it is still

4.3 light years away. The closest

star to us in Alpha Centauri

is Proxima Centauri. Proxima Centauri

is like any other star but it is closer.

If you try to spot Proxima Centauri

you will not have good luck. (P.S

I lied, the closest star to Earth is

the Sun tee hee hee!).

Life Cycle Of Stars

All stars are born by eagle nebulas which, are clouds of hydrogen, gas, and dust. Some of the younger stars shine way brighter than the sun. When stars get older, they cool off, swell up, and turn red. These older stars are called red giants. Red giants become very active, and give off dangerous gasses. "One day, the sun may turn into a red giant and give off violent gasses."--Ethan Willmann
