Formation Formed from exploded supernovas. Gravity pulls the clouds of gas and dust together. A collapsing cloud forms a hot core that’s what starts to develop a star
Herschel's Garnet Star AKA: “Herschel’s Garnet Star" deep red color; Red Giant Most intensely colored stars ever recorded when viewed through a telescope
Herschel Name honers: star's deep color and Sir William Herschel Discovered planet Uranus 1781
Mu Cephei 38,000 times brighter than the sun Light years away Absolute visual magnitude: -6.7
Constellation Located in the constellation of Cepheus:
Comparisons Larger than the sun If it replaced our sun, it would extend as far to Jupiter or Saturn.
Location! Location! Location! Largest to naked eye Best viewed during August through January
One of the largest and brightest stars in the known galaxy. Too far for a good parallax distance calculation. Approx 2400 light years away.
Unstable and pulsates Surrounded by warm water vapor Shell of dust and gas
Death of Mu Cephei Nearing end of life Core is fusing helium to carbon In a few million years the star will explode as a supernova Stellar black hole

Classifying Stars Brightness. Some stars are so bright that you can see them even in a lighted city, while others are so dim that you can only see them.
Solar System. What is the Solar System? Consists of a star, (like the sun) and all of the planets, moons and other bodies that travel around it. Planets.
