Stars – Paragraph Writing

Stars

Stars are located far off. In fact, they are so far, that it takes millions of years for the light to reach us. Due to their immense distance from Earth, stars appear as fixed points of light in the sky. The brightness of the stars is what makes them visible to us. The distance between us and the stars is so enormous, that ‘light-year’ has to be used as a unit of distance. A physical travel even to the nearest of the stars, if at all possible, would take millions of years for us. It is by no accident that the use of the terms like “astronomical figures” has been popular. Sun, our parent star, is located at a distance of 8 minutes and 19 seconds in the units of light years. The vast distances that separate the stars are truly beyond our imagination!
