We have just begun a unit about Outer Space! Our first order of business was learning about stars and constellations. We have learned many exciting facts about stars. Did you know that most stars live for billions of years? Stars may also be yellow, orange, white, red or blue. As stars get older they get bigger. They are huge fireballs of gases in outer space. Ancient astronomers studied the night sky and many of the constellations we see in the sky today were named by them.
