1. We now know enough about the stars of the universe to understand that just like snowflakes, every single one is unique
- It is as if they have their own fingerprint if you will…(different colors and brightness)
2. A star has so many variables in its makeup that each on is different from the next.
- Variables include the # of atoms; exact chemical composition, size, temperature, and motion.
- Stars all have color and brightness differences – though some require spectroscopic study to detect their particular identity.
3. “The best tool we have for studying a star’s light is the star’s spectrum. A spectrum (the plural is “spectra”) of a star is like the star’s fingerprint. Just like each person has unique fingerprints, each star has a unique spectrum.” 1
4. The Bible is accurate in its astronomy as it relates to stellar properties. Paul wrote the I Corinthians text some 2000 years ago.
