Stars are balls of hot gas that shine in the sky and did you know that even the Sun is a star? A bunch of stars canform a galaxy and because there are trillions of stars that means there are billions of galaxy. The Earths galaxy is the Milky Way. There are many diifferent sizes such as Supergiant stars, Dwarf stars, Neutron stars and many more... Stars can form constillaions to make a shape or patterns in the sky. They can be very helpfulm because if you are lost in the middle of the night and have no idea what to do, you can just look up in the sky and keep your eye on it and follow it. Sometims people think that the stars twinkle but that is not true because the star is just playing and messing about.
A lot of people think that stars are basically shooting stars that are just zooming right past you although, they are not. Shooting stars are medias burning on fire when they get way too hotbut you can still make a wish if you want to so they are not stars.
