Stars


Introduction


If you look up at the sky on a clear, dark night it is possible to see between 2000 and 4000 stars with the naked eye, but these are just a few compared to the many billions that exist. All of the stars that we see belong to our own galaxy, the Milky Way, and this is just one of many millions of galaxies that make up the Universe. There are more stars in the Universe than there are grains of sand on every beach in the world.
