    “Oh, be a fine girl/guy kiss me,” or maybe not. Learning this phrase has helped multiple astronomers to educate themselves on the spectral classification of stars and continues to do so in today’s time. Annie Jump Cannon’s legacy will carry on lasting a lifetime! The first letters of each word in the phrase represents the seven main types of stars. Starting with ”‘O,” these stars are very young, blue, hot, massive and extremely bright star. This type of star is very uncommon similar to the “B” and “A” stars. These stars get their energy from nuclear fusion, as they convert Hydrogen to Helium. As these massive stars begin to die once they’ve worn out their hydrogen and are now very old stars, they turn into giants/supergiants (old, large stars), resting just above the main sequence stars. This is where the “F” and “G” stars are located. The hotter they are, the brighter they are demonstrating the Sun being a G star. Next, the core contracts as the outer layers expand.

    Laying on the fresh cut grass of your lawn, you watch the sun sink behind the mountains as day subtly fades into night. There is always a minute of darkness as the city holds its breath.
