Stars have different colors, which are indicators of temperature. The hottest stars tend to appear blue or blue-white, whereas the coolest stars are red. A color index of a star is the difference in the magnitudes measured at any two wavelengths and is one way that astronomers measure and express the temperature of stars.

What exactly the "everything" is that is changed for this semi-fictionalized Jim Carrey remains something of a mystery, but based on the book's.   In Kowal’s recent offering, THE CALCULATING STARS, we get to see what happened to cause Elma’s generation to end up on Mars. The book opens with a meteorite descending on the earth, and as a result the climate is predicted to go through a radical enough change that human life will no longer be sustainable.

The second method is to find the age of a cluster, or group, of stars. Many stars form together in clusters, so they all have the same age. Wind, Sand and Stars (French title: Terre des hommes, literally "Land of Men") is a memoir by the French aristocrat aviator-writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and a winner of several literary deals with themes such as friendship, death, heroism, and solidarity among colleagues, and illustrates the author's opinions of what makes life worth living.

We measure the brightness of these stars using the magnitude scale. The magnitude scale seems a little backwards. The lower the number, the brighter the object is; and the higher the number, the dimmer it is. This scale is logarithmic and set so that every 5 steps up equals a times decrease in brightness.
