2-Our Sun is a medium-sized star.
Once regarded by astronomers as a small and relatively insignificant star, the Sun is now thought to be brighter than about 85% of the stars in the Milky Way galaxy, most of which are red dwarfs.

If i ever get to live in country i would like to get a telescope or something to look upto the heavens. Just imagine all throughout our history everyone looked up to virtually the same thing, and must of wondered.
I believe the truths they teach about gravity is wrong, and i reckon moons gravity is close to earths gravity.
# Locate the Big Dipper in the northern sky. Knowing how to find the Big Dipper is easy due to its large size and distinct shape. Depending upon the time of the year constellation of stars may be tipped in different directions as it rotates around the polestar.
# As shown in the diagram, locate the two stars that form the outer edge of the Big Dipper.
# Draw an imaginary line straight through the two stars of the dipper edge and toward the Little Dipper. The line will point very close to the handle of the Little Dipper.
# The brightest star in the Little Dipper is at the end of its handle. This is the North Star.
