In 2002, a previously unknown star, later named V838 Monocerotis, suddenly brightened up. It was assumed to be a supernova, but it was revealed that it wasn't. The remnant in the center was later revealed to be THE FIRST known BROWN Supergiant!!!!! V838 Monocerotis is shrinking and has already lost almost 76% of it's size!

Wohg64

VX Sagittarii is a pulsating variable, meaning it changes it size all of the time! That will mean that one day you put it in your size comparison and the next day, the size changes, you will never know when your comparison becomes outdated.

Wohg64

KY Cygni is 273,000 times brighter than the Sun. Fortunately, it is 5,000 ly away. So if you see KY Cygni in the sky with a telescope, be thankful that it isn't any closer. And if you think you can't take advice from a kid, then I'm assuming you're not a kid. Which is very likely, considering most Wikia users aren't younger than 13.

O

Ah, Eta Carinae A. The largest star in the Homunculus Nebula, which is inside the Carina Nebula 7,500 ly away. The Great Eruption was an event in 1837 where Eta Carinae went under a nova, causing it to expel material and brightening it to a magnitude of -1.0 .

Years ago, Betelgeuse was smaller than Antares, but now, it's vice versa. This is because Betelgeuse is swelling up whilst losing weight and will explode sooner or later. But Antares is swelling and losing weight too, but at a far slower rate.

Eta Carinae A is an absolutely huge star, clocking at around 400 times the size and 120 times the weight of our Sun. It is set to go Hypernova thousands of years from now and release tons of gamma rays. Hypernovas are similar to Supernovas, except they are far more powerful and can even affect astronauts and spacecrafts 7,500 ly away with their gamma ray bursts if at the right angle!

Polaris is the North Star here, but on Mars, Deneb would be the North Star. But Polaris is vastly different from Deneb. For one: Deneb is a single star, Polaris is a quintuple system. Deneb is a white supergiant, Polaris is a yellowish-white supergiant. Deneb is much, much larger and more massive than Polaris. There are so many differences!

Enif has got to be a good star. It's 'fine' backwards and it would still be fine if it had a retrograde rotation, which it doesn't. Enif is a candidate for my favourite star, but I like WOH G64 and the Sun better.

HD 37974 is in the process of forming planets. This is extraordinary because it is blue, and it's a hypergiant. Bluer stars tend to not form planets due to massive amounts of radiation. And hypergiants can't very well form planets due to extreme amounts of radiation and hungriness.

You know the Black Knight, an alleged 13,000-year-old alien probe that orbits the Earth in a near-polar orbit and the Moon? Well, in 1972 a dude named Duncan Lunan analyzed long radio echoes in experiments done by Jorgen Hals and Nikola Tesla and suggested that the Black Knight originated from the Izar system. Apparently the larger star, Izar A has 7 planets and these aliens live on the 6th planet. The 6th planet, along with the 1st and 3rd all have one moon, and the 4th one has 3. The Black Knight satellite was orbiting the moon at the time, and it help update Arcturus' position on these alien's maps. This story may not be true, but I guess we can look at pictures of the Black Knight (which just might be space debris) and call it a day.
