FC: My Life as a Star | By Sierra Mitchell
1: I dedicate this to my mom mom, pop pop, mother, and Ms. Grosch :)
2: In the Beginning..
3: In the beginning (First Stage—Nebula, at least 5 facts): Dear diary, When I woke up this morning I was only a ball of dust and gas. I started to feel this pulling feeling and it was gravity pulling my dust and gas together. I started to feel heavier and denser and hotter.I felt my hydrogen changing into helium as I was going through nuclear fusion. Throughout today it was rough but now I am born. I am a brand new baby star!
4: In my childhood (Main-Sequence Star, at least 5 facts): It was fun being a baby star while it lasted but now I am going through a change again. I am entering the longest stage of my life called the main sequence. In my belly I feel a lot of movement and energy. It must be my hydrogen fusing into helium. I am losing a whole lot of power and energy. My size won’t change much as long as I have a lot of helium.
5: As an adult (Giants, Supergiants, at least 5 facts): I am going through another change. I am getting bigger and cool. Now that my helium is gone, my stomach is getting smaller and smaller. The atmosphere around me keeps getting bigger and color and I am turning into a beautiful red supergiant. I am a hundred times bigger than the sun.
6: New baby star The end of my life (White Dwarfs, at least 5 facts): I am starting to use all of my hydrogen much faster than the sun does. I’m getting very hot and blue. I don’t think I am going to live much longer. I feel myself starting to explode and I am a bright flash of light. I am starting to collapse and my middle is getting squeezed together to make a brand new baby star two times bigger than the sun. The rest of me, my relatives, are floating around the galaxy.
