Stars are mostly huge balls of hot gases such as hydrogen and helium. These gases stick together using their own gravity. These huge balls of gases produce light and heat from the energy released by the thermonuclear fusion of hydrogen and helium.
Some stars shine more brightly than others. Their brightness depends on factors such as how much light stars put out and their distance from earth. The nearer the star the brighter it is. The nearest star to the Earth is the Sun, thus the brightest.
Stars are building blocks of our universe and their life cycle spans billions of years. These luminous balls of gases helped ancient explorers navigate the seas and now help modern-day scientists navigate the universe.
So now, we can say that stars are nothing but merely luminous balls of hot gases. Also, we now know that these stars not only make our night sky beautiful but also helps us in various ways. 🙂. So that is all for now, meet you in my next article. Keep Reading, Keep Exploring, and Keep Sharing your Knowledge, and above all BE CURIOUS. 🙂
