SOLAR SYSTEM 2
Question One
Stars are explained as glowing circles of plasma which are connected by their own
gravity. The star that is close to the earth is the sun. The rest of the stars are seen during the night
as small luminous objects since they are too far to the earth compared to the sun. Despite having
the sun as the main star due to its proximity to the earth, there exist other stars in the universe.
These comprise of Rigel, Sirius, Dark star, and Antares. These stars have a unique way of
moving around the universe. The sun, as well as other stars, are seen to be moving from the east
to west on a daily basis. However, one may notice that they tend to move diagonally instead of
straight up. This diagonal movement starts from the north heading to the south.
When one turns to the north, the stars are seen to be moving from the left side towards
the right side. This is however different in the north since the stars usually move from northeast
towards the southeast of the earth. They also move in anticlockwise circles about a point which
is above the horizon in the north. Therefore, one could conclude that there are some specific
stars which usually move from the east towards the west passing through the southern sky and
then set in the west. Furthermore, there are some stars which move from southeast towards the
southwest by passing through the south using lower arcs.
Kepler’s Laws of motion could be associated with the stars to explain their movement
around the earth. This is because the laws explain the way the planets move around the sun
which is also a star. For instance, the earth tends to have a path that is an ellipse this star at a
single focus. There exist various kinds of stars which comprise of the neutron star, black dwarf,
brown dwarf, and white dwarf. The neutron star is said to be very dense compared to the sun
which is too close to the earth. The black dwarf is said to have lost its ability to produce light
