1. What is a star?
So you know what stars are. You’re seeing them everyday when you look up at the night sky. What are stars exactly? Do you know? The answer is simple. Stars are big masses of gas. This gas is so hot at it emits light. It’s almost like a light bulb (well, almost 😉 ) . And this light is so bright that we can see it on earth – even though they are billions of kilometers years away from us!
And even though they seem small and tiny, in reality, they’re 10x – 100x times bigger than our earth. (Now you know something really exciting!)
