Today we'll talk about the overall characteristics of the stars. We'll focus on 2 characteristics in particular temperature luminosity - How much light made. These are two of the most simple and basic characteristics of a star but together they do a good job of characterizing almost any star in the sky. We talked about temperature before. Two ways to get it. Color - hotter is bluer cooler is redder. Spectral pattern of absorption lines.
