Origami Galaxy
A star is a large, glowing ball of plasma held together by its own gravity. Plasma, like gas, is a state of matter formed from a dense and hot conglomeration of free atoms, electrons, and ions. The star closest to the Earth is the Sun, but many more can be seen with the naked eye at night when they are not obstructed by the Sun, clouds, or other atmospheric phenomena. With a telescope, the number of visible stars increases tremendously! When examining the heavens, the ancients saw constellations, that is, figures formed from stars joined by imaginary lines, to which they assigned mythical names—Ursa Major, Taurus, Scorpio, etc.
