These notes have been created and designed to help students understand the lifecycle of stars, what makes stars shine and why/how they look different. At the end, I have included Hubble pictures of different nebulas. My students always "oohh" and "ahhh" over these pictures. They especially love the image of the dark nebula, which we all have agreed looks like a Dementor from Harry Potter! Enjoy!
