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

Nick Ketchum. Brightness & Distance 38,000 times brighter than the sun Absolute visual magnitude- Mv=-6.7 1,550 light-years away.
Mu Cephei name was known as “Garnet Star” because of it’s deep red color.
ASTRONOMY JEOPARDY Our Solar System Properties.
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.
Stars and Galaxies.
Star Properties and Stellar Evolution. What are stars composed of? Super-hot gases of Hydrogen and Helium. The sun is 70% Hydrogen and 30% Helium.
Astronomy: Life Cycle of A Star
Properties of Stars. Star Color – the color of a star is a clue to its temperature a.The coolest stars are red b.The medium stars are yellow c.The hottest.
OUR SOLAR SYSTEM Our solar system is nearly 5 billion years old.
A. Earth’s Galaxy—and Others Galaxy: A large group of stars, gas, and dust held together by gravity. Milky Way: Our galaxy which contains about 200 billion.
The UniverseSection 1 Key Ideas 〉 How are stars formed? 〉 How can we learn about stars if they are so far away? 〉 What natural cycles do stars go through?

Studying the Lives of Stars Stars don’t last forever Each star is born, goes through its life cycle, and eventually die.
Stars. Characteristics of Stars A star is a massive ball of plasma that emits light and electromagnetic energy throughout the universe. While there is.
Life Cycle of Stars.
Stars!!!! Galaxies and the Universe too!. Stars are far away! The closest star to Earth is the sun. The next closest is Proxima Centauri If you can travel.
