The thermonuclear fusion filtered by our atmosphere is what makes it all twinkly.
Can we get a kajillion watt LED equivalent sun to replace this aging energy inefficient gassy ball of fire ?
And here I thought a Star was an over-the-hill and over-paid gas-bag that people thought could act.
Not gas, Jimbo. Plasma. Keep up with the times.
Pumbaa…with you…everything’s gas.
covers both the “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” and the “Nova” aspects…
First there’s imagination, then there’s reality.
Think I prefer the first answer.
So there’s the heart’s answer to the question as well as the academic answer. It’s good to know both and when to apply each one!

“In our world," said Eustace, “a star is a huge ball of flaming gas.”Even in your world, my son, that is not what a star is, but only what it is made of.”

“Even in your world, my son, that is not what a star is, but only what it is made of.”—The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Good job Jimbo, teaching him the difference between Reality and the Lies they tell you in school.

Its the Star Pixies that hold matter together not invisible matter and energy (Dark).
A star is a miasma of incandescent plasma. Per TMBG and science.
They must love way out in the country because living in the city blanks out all the stars because of all the light as we all know so most of these comic strips that talk about the stars & show them in their strips are just showing us their memories from when they were children & you could still see the stars. I miss it so!
I know a couple of stars….the second definition.
