Is It a Star?

Not all the points of light you see at night are stars. Airplanes, satellites, and meteors (or "shooting stars") move fast, so they're easy to tell from stars. But what about planets?

Planets look just like bright stars, so telling stars from planets can be tricky. Use a Star Finder to help you figure out which is which.
