Parent topics


  • Antares [r]: The brightest star in the constellation of Scorpius and the sixteenth brightest star in the nighttime sky. [e]
  • Black hole [r]: Area of space-time with a gravitational field so intense that its escape velocity is equal to or exceeds the speed of light. [e]
  • K-type star [r]: Star which is usually slightly cooler than our Sun and often orange in colour; includes hydrogen-burning 'main sequence' stars and older, giant stars such as Arcturus. [e]
  • Magnitude (astronomy) [r]: Logarithmic measure of the brightness of an object, measured in a specific wavelength or passband, usually in optical or near-infrared wavelengths. [e]
  • Nova (astronomy) [r]: Variable star in the class of cataclysmic variable stars, which is normally very faint but occasionally erupts in an immense explosion, increasing its brightness a thousand to tens of millions of times; similar but unrelated to supernovae. [e]
  • Parallax [r]: the apparent change in the position of an object resulting from a change in position of the observer. [e]
  • Red dwarf (star) [r]: Small and relatively cool star, of low luminosity, being in the main sequence either late K or M spectral type. [e]
  • Stellar classification (astrophysics) [r]: The categorization of stars by various properties. [e]
  • Sun [r]: The star that defines our solar system. [e]
  • Variable star [r]: A star whose apparent brightness exhibits periodic variations [e]

Other related topics

  • Galaxy [r]: Gravitationally bound system of stars typically contain ten million to one trillion stars. [e]
  • Globular cluster [r]: Spherical, globular collection of stars that orbits a galactic core as a satellite, and is generally smaller in size than a galaxy. [e]
  • Universe [r]: The summation of all particles and energy that exist and the space-time in which all events occur. [e]
