What are stars, and how to astronomers study them? We’ll learn about the properties of stars, and what makes one of our Galaxy’s A-listers, the Sun, so very special. We’ll explore the relative sizes of the Earth, Sun, and Moon and use a Lux Meter and the parallax method to compare brightness and learn distances between stars.
