      Hi Emilee32 and kitana356. My favorite star is Sirius. It’s the brightest star in our night sky and I like it because it is a very pretty shade of blue. It’s also really cool because its a binary star star system. Although it looks like one star to us here on Earth, it’s actually two stars that are very close together which orbit each other. When we look through a telescope we can resolve that there are two stars instead of just one!!
