    A star is known as “a fixed luminous point in the night sky that is a large, remote incandescent body like the sun” (Oxford Dictionary). The life cycle of a star is a very complex and magnificent process. Every star starts out as a nebula and have their own physical features. They all evolve and turn into something beautiful. Every star's physical features vary. Their diameters can range from 450 times smaller to 1,000 times larger than the sun. Temperatures expand from 3,000 degrees Celsius to over 27,000 degrees Celsius, such as the star named Bellatrix. Temperatures determine the color of each star. Hotter stars are blue and cooler stars are red. The sun is about 5,000 degrees Celsius, which is why it’s yellowish. Although they are all…

    Thesis Statement: During their existence, stars form when the density of interstellar gas and dust, which form molecular clouds, reaches a certain point, and die by collapsing and turning into a white dwarf or a neutron star. Stars can fail and become a brown dwarf. Stars form when the density of the concentration of molecular clouds collapses and reaches a certain point. These regions are usually extremely cold and contain carbon and hydrogen. However, not all materials from the clouds form…

    known as stars. Stars are one of the most popular astronomical objects and represents the building blocks of galaxies. A star is defined as a vast ball of gas held together by its own gravity. The nearest star to earth is the Sun. Similar to a living organism, stars have a life cycle in which they are born, they develop and grow, and eventually die. Stars begin as a vast cloud interstellar dust (mostly carbon or silicon) and hydrogen gas floating around in space. This gas can be floating for…

    and the sky and… the faint glow of a star. Seeing the first star that night, you make a wish and remember the first time you saw one. You still wonder what that speck of light is—How it got to be up there, why it sometimes is so bright and other times so faint, and how it plays an important role in the universe. The street light flickers on above your head, snapping you out of your reverie and reminding you that you still have an essay to write. You sigh, sit up, and walk to your house, the…

    I look up to the sky and see millions of stars, and I wonder to myself. What makes them light up so bright, and what makes them a star? What does it take to create a star; they just don’t pop out and shine bright. I want to know the process, and how long it takes for a star to be born. I am also curious to know if the star can die. I plan on finding the answer. I believe that they are created by gases and that they die when they use up all of their gases. Stars have had an impact in our…

    easy and it is never certain. In his romantic poem “Bright Star, would I were stedfast as thou art,” John Keats admires the steadfastness of the star, and how the speaker wishes he could be in the same situation as the star with his love. On the contrary, Robert Frost, in his poem “Choose Something Like a Star,” admires the star for its uncertain nature and focuses on humanity’s need for reassurance from a high power. Although both poets address the star initially, a closer examination of each…

    Star Journal Year 1: Today my nebula started collapsing. A star a few light years away exploded in a supernova, which started my formation process. I’m feeling changes in my gravitational pull, I think it’s getting stronger. I’m so excited, in a few million years, I’m going to be a protostar! I can feel all of the gas and dust starting to form around me, slowly condensing. It’s making a huge spinning disk around me, and the cloud of hydrogen is getting smaller. My core isn’t hot enough to start…

    his use of stars throughout his poetry to signify a light in the dark. Neruda uses a star motif to indicate a positive feeling or outlook surrounded by the harsh darkness of negativity. Neruda suggests that there can only be light if there is also darkness and the emotional highs and lows in life must ultimately balance out. In his poems, Neruda uses the motif of stars to portray positive emotions in contrast to the negative emotions represented by night, showing the reader that people cannot…
