The stars are so incredibly far away , and yet appear so close to us at night. We are all captivated by their glittering beauty. But stars are not just twinkling lights in the sky. Some of them are planets, just like earth, whilst the majority are huge balls of gas, like our sun. How do these planets and stars move? How are they formed?
