      Stars

      In April, our monthly theme is STARS.

      Let’s play our monthly alphabet game.

      Based on the alphabet, name a star, a constellation or another celestial element. I am sure you will be needing some help from Google. Why not? Maybe we’ll learn some things? If you have a reference or an image to illustrate, go for it?

      Let’s go!

      (remember: only ONE answer per letter, to give us more options for seconds if we get to that point)

                  F = Fusion (nuclear fusion) “supports the star’s enormous mass from collapsing in on itself and  heats the star so high that it glows and is so bright that we can see it.”

                      Orion’s Belt or the Belt of Orion, also known as the Three Kings or Three Sisters, is an asterism in the constellation Orion. It consists of the three bright stars Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka. Looking for Orion’s Belt in the night sky is the easiest way to locate Orion in the sky. Wikipedia

                          H = Halo  (circle of light appearing to surround the sun or moon and resulting from refraction or reflection of light by ice particles in the atmosphere from = Merriam-Webster dictionary definition) I discovered a halo for the first time in January and February and tried to know what it was.
