If you were a star, who would you be? (Celestrial or person...either way)

    ICelestrial ( as in the universe) or an actual person.

    If I was a star, I would be who I am today...

    YOU?

    BioMatty saidI'd be the sun.


    damn, that was gonna be me my line.

    i guess ill be Sirius (in Canis Major)
    i reside 8.6 light years from the earth, have an absolute magnitude of +1.4, and an apparent magnitute of -1.46


    Apparent magnitude is a measure of the brightness of a celestial object as seen from Earth. The lower the number, the brighter the object. Negative numbers indicate extreme brightness. The full moon has an apparent magnitude of -12.6; the sun's is -26.8. We can see objects up to 6th magnitude without a telescope. Apparent magnitude is abbreviated m. This system of rating the brightness of celestial objects was developed by the Greek astronomer Hipparchus in 120 B.C.

    Absolute magnitude is a measure of the inherent brightness of a celestial object. This scale is defined as the apparent magnitude a star would have if it were seen from a distance of 32.6 light-years (10 parsecs). The lower the number, the brighter the object. Negative numbers indicate extreme brightness.

    The north star seems to be popular.

    I will be our Sun in 5 Billion years from now. A Red Giant.


    "The Sun is expected to become a red giant approximately 5 billion years from now.[7] It is calculated that the Sun will become sufficiently large to engulf the current orbits of the solar system's inner planets, up to Earth,[11][12][13] and its radius will expand to a minimum of 200 times its current value.[14] The Sun will lose a significant fraction of its mass in the process of becoming a red giant, and there is a chance that Mars and all the outer planets will escape as their resulting orbits will widen. [15] Mercury and most likely Venus will have been swallowed by sun's outer layer at this time. Earth's fate is less clear. Earth could technically achieve a widening of its orbit and could potentially maintain a sufficiently high angular velocity to keep it from becoming engulfed. In order to do so, its orbit needs to increase to between 1.3 AU (190,000,000 km) and 1.7 AU (250,000,000 km). [16] However the results of studies announced in 2008 show that due to tidal interaction between sun and Earth, Earth would actually fall back into a lower orbit, and get engulfed and incorporated inside the sun before the sun reaches its largest size, despite the sun losing about 38% of its mass. [17] Before this happens, Earth's biosphere will have long been destroyed by the Sun's steady increase in brightness as its hydrogen supply dwindles and its core contracts, even before the transition to a Red Giant. After just over 1 billion years, the extra solar energy input will cause Earth's oceans to evaporate and the hydrogen from the water to be lost permanently to space, with total loss of water by 3 billion years.[18] Earth's atmosphere and lithosphere will become like that of Venus. Over another billion years, most of the atmosphere will get lost in space as well;[15], ultimately leaving Earth as a desiccated, dead planet with a surface of molten rock.[19]"

    I'd be neutron one or.. maybe even Black_Hole )))))))))))

    (yeah... sounds a lil bit like cool porn nick)

    and if you are talking about glossy PR world - i'd be.. Strayed Asshole (LOL)

    (oh, it's just for the closest circle of journalists icon_cool.gif exclusive)

    btw, Sun is G5, G8 or G20? )

    The only problem with that is that the moon is not a star. It is a moon...

    That one on the big dipper. No no that one... the one to your left... your OTHER left... that one. Why you ask? Well, it is a nice star. It's on Alaska's flag (how many stars have that distinction?). Plus, Sarah Palin can see me from her house, so she will know everything about me.

    though, you'll be naked there - does it bother you anyhow?

    Fomalhaut - the first planet photographed in the visible spectrum circles this star.

    For the secret-pretend world of actors... one of these guys

    I'm puzzled by this question -- WHO I would be suggests a person, not a cosmic WHAT. This isn't about people who are entertainment stars? As a celestial star, though, I suppose I'd be a white dwarf.

    Not if Palin has anything to do with it. Something tells me that naked gay men (even as celestial objects) are a big no-no in her culture. She'll find a way to censor me.

    MSUBioNerd, you claimed my star! Lol, guess we think alike! In that case I will have to go with Etamin, as it is the crown on the head of great Draco.

    hey white dwarf.......thats the spirit! My question was a play on words and can be answered anyway you want.
