The Milky Way is HUGE!
It is bigger than most other galaxies.
The Milky Way contains BILLIONS of stars!
Earth is located in a perfect spot, the middle of the
edge and center.
The heart of the Milky Way is 27,000 light years from
The color of a star is a clue to its temperature!
The blue stars are the hottest!
The red stars are the coolest!
That means that a stars color is clue to its
The thermometer takes reading that a blue star is much
hotter than our sun!
It also shows that a red star is not as hot as our sun.
There Is a big pink cloud, this is a nebula.
These nebulas are what make the stars.
During the stars life it burns out its gases.
Once the star is done and has no more gases, it
burns out and debris float everywhere, this is
called a supernova.
The black hole kills the stars!
Every 1,000 to 10,000 years a star gets to close to a
Black hole .The black holes super gravity sucks in a star
and the star gets ripped and torn apart. The black hole
then keeps going until it has all the stars it wants.
Artificial Satellite: A made by man relatively small mass
that travels in an orbit.
Reusable Spacecraft: A spacecraft that you can reuse
until it gets too warn out.
Space Station: A large satellite capable of making a crew,
placed in permanent orbit around the Earth.
During these guided reading meets I learned that
our galaxy, the Milky Way, is very powerful and
has many powerful things living inside of it.
Like black holes that kill stars, nebulas that give birth
to stars and planets, and all of the outstanding
stars that have many different colors and temperatures.
