TmToulouse - Why did you revert my edit? I am simply trying to point out that "scientists speculate"? Mayeb I was too stupid to write it properly, but maybe you can do better, and retain Our Lord's presence in the story? After all, it is the most important thing in our heavens? NeverForget

No, its not needed. Tmtoulouse 22:38, 23 March 2007 (EDT)
What do you mean? There's no mention WHATSOEVER of Our Lord on this critically important page? Why should we let the scientists simply get away unchallenged with everything they believe? I thought the point here was to allow differing viewpoints? NeverForget
Look at the commandments. ColinRtalk 22:41, 23 March 2007 (EDT)

Reading the phrase "its eight planets" makes me sad. Poor little Pluto. :( ColinRtalk 22:41, 23 March 2007 (EDT)

Poor Pluto???? Poor astrologist!!!! All those planet maps and interactions all down the drawn! Tmtoulouse 22:42, 23 March 2007 (EDT)
Interesting side note, one of my professors at Vandy wrote Is Pluto a Planet? and is very involved in the discussion among the IAU. If you have the time and money, it's supposed to be a pretty good read. ColinRtalk 22:46, 23 March 2007 (EDT)
I will check it out. Sorry about Vandy loosing to Georgetown tonight :). Tmtoulouse 22:47, 23 March 2007 (EDT)

Tmtoulouse - why the problem with simply moving God to the top of this page? Can we not find a way to bring God into this article? It's not like the Sun isn't important or anything? NeverForget

Its in the article. Tmtoulouse 22:52, 23 March 2007 (EDT)

Is this more reasonable? NeverForget

Pluto is not a planet any more. That was dicided some months ago by an international board of astronomers. Regarding the article, I think it is in perfect conditions! Perhaps it's still a little too short but the text so far is good. Jks 12:30, 26 March 2007 (EDT)

Revision--and high time


As you can see, I have revised this article extensively. I thank all those who contributed to the earlier version of the article. Some of the theories listed, though not what I would agree with, are nevertheless valuable as documents of people's thinking on the subject of the Sun and other subjects.--TerryHTalk 13:50, 6 March 2008 (EST)

Spectral Classification 101

A star's size and colour are determined as follows: Colour:

  • O = very hot, bright, bluish in colour (most of an 'O' star's output is in the ultraviolet range);
  • B = very hot, blue in colour;
  • A = hot, bluish-white in colour;
  • F = hot, white with a tinge of yellow in colour;
  • G = warm, yellow in colour;
  • K = cool, orange in colour;
  • M = cool, red in colour.


  • I supergiants
    • Ia-0 (hypergiants or extremely luminous supergiants)
    • Ia (luminous supergiants)
    • Iab (intermediate luminous supergiants)
    • Ib (less luminous supergiants)
  • II bright giants
    • IIa,
    • IIab
    • IIb
  • III normal giant stars
    • IIIa
    • IIIab
    • IIIb
  • IV subgiant stars
    • IVa
    • IVb
  • V main sequence stars (dwarfs)
    • Va
    • Vb
  • VI subdwarf stars (rarely used)
  • VII white dwarfs (rarely used)

Thus Sol is a G2 (*yellow*) V (main sequence dwarf) star, not "A "V" star in this class is in the fifth level of luminosity&mdasha yellow dwarf star." The number after the letter determines the luminosity (and thus temperature) of the star within its colour type - a G0 V star is slightly hotter, brighter, larger and more massive than a G2 V which, in turn, is a lot brighter, hotter, larger and more massive than a G8 V star.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and explaining your change. Learn together 18:17, 28 April 2008 (EDT)
You are most welcome, and I offer my most profound apologies for neglecting to explain my original edit. It was remiss and discourteous of me. May God (who, of course, gave us the beautiful stars) bless you and be with you. HumbleServant 18:20, 28 April 2008 (EDT)
