Observing the stars in the sky is always an extraordinary experience. It gives us an impression of the greatness of the universe.
You can also get the extraordinary experience by coloring the star coloring pages below. Choose the pictures you love then color them. Happy coloring.

A star is nothing more than a celestial body. It is, in practice, a sphere composed of gas, which emits such a bright, bright light – such that the starry sky appears very bright – because of its unusually high temperature.
For a star to shine, it must touch at least 10 million degrees centigrade. In short, space is not exactly a place where you can stay cool!

Although stars appear to us white or yellow – or so they teach us to draw them from an early age – stars can have different colors. The colder ones have a hue between white and yellow, while the warmer ones usually have a blue tint.
Whether a star is more or less bright, and consequently more or less visible from our planet, depends first of all on its distance from the Earth, that is, how far away or how close it is to the Earth.
It is evident, in fact, that a star will seem all the brighter, the closer it is to us. It should always be remembered, however, that we talk about “sidereal” distances (not by chance), in the order of millions of kilometers: something that our mind can hardly understand.
Stars can be of different sizes: in any case, we are talking about enormous, gigantic entities. The smallest stars have a diameter of several thousand kilometers. The most massive stars, on the other hand, can be up to three billion kilometers in diameter.
Perhaps you do not know, however, that stars can be presented not only individually, one by one, but also in groups. We speak, specifically, of binary stars to indicate systems composed of two celestial bodies, and of multiple systems to mean systems consisting of three or more celestial bodies. In the presence of many stars, we speak, instead, of star clusters.
Surely there is a lot more to be said about stars and what they are. But curiosity will be satisfied, in small doses, on the stars’ blog, OSR’s astronomy blog, the register of stars.
