Some are a little brighter than others, and some seem a little larger. But you might imagine this is due to their different distances from the earth. 1 Well, all stars are basically the same in that every star is a ball of very hot gas which shines by its own light. But the nature of that gas, and what is happening to it can vary greatly from star to star, Which means there can be great difference among the stars. One way of studying these differences is by studying the spectra of the stars, The spectrum is the breaking down of the light into its various bands of color. Each chemical element in a gaseous or vapor state has its own pattern of lines occupyng its own place in the spectrum. So trie spectrum from a star tells us what chemical elements that star is composed of. This enables astronomers to divide stars into classes according to spectrum — ranging from blue stars and ending with red stars, pur own sun, which is also a star, is yellow and falls in the middle of he series. By measuring the intensity of he different colors in the spectrum, we can also calculate its emperature. The blue stars are arge and hot and brilliant, They have surface temperatures of 50,- of course is because of Iheir great difference in sixe. Still another special kind of star is called a a "variable" star. The variable slars are stars whose brightness or magnitude is observed to change. The change in brightness may occur slowly or quickly, regularly or irregularly, A "nova" is a star that blazes suddenly into view and becomes extremely bright, and then slowly becomes faint again. So you see all starts are definitely not alike. 956 Smocked pillows — dccoratinR rage! Use velvet, corduroy, heavy cotton, silk. Smocked pillows — easy to make. Smock on reverse side- rich effect!
