All of this information on stars stems from a spiritual perspective aptly titled “Spiritual Astronomy” with its Celestial Cosmology. If you know very little about stars then this “information on stars” page will be good for you. This may be very basic information, yet Scot Aaron’s unique spiritual perspective should share new insights, some inspirational “ah-ha” awakenings (and hopefully some appreciate smiles). If doing a search for “information on stars,” some might be looking for Hollywood stars, famous actors who shine on screen, in media, and online fan pages. Let’s talk about human “stars,” then continue to bright, close stars like Sirius, or star-like light from the Crab Neutron Star, or distance star forms like the Great Andromeda Galaxy or even our own Milky Way as a star (if seen from a distance like the Andromeda galaxy); then, how we connect to stars, embodying Light to ULTIMATELY transform Earth into a star – an Earth Star.
Even though movie stars are usually very far from stars shinning in the “heavens,” we can think of ourselves connected with stars, even “part of the stars.” Astronomers like to say that our sun (a star), our solar system, and even our physical bodies come from the stars. Spiritual Astronomy takes this to the core, saying we connect to and circulate light from the stars within consciousness. Even as we connect to and experience God and Oneness, we can say “we are the light,” “we are the stars.”If aligned with Light we share information on the stars as we share depths of love and intelligence. The reality of our connection with the stars is clearly seen on the first pyramid text of Unas (4400 years ago), where he shines like the stars in life, to then be introduced to his divine siblings who are represented as the stars in the Afterlife. Unas calls on Earth’s brightest star (we call this star Sirius) who is seen as a goddess by ancient Egyptians (Sopdet or Sothis) … she can be thought of as the “star form” of Isis. The mother of Isis, “Nut” arches her Celestial Body as stars in the heavens. Yes, due to living a just life and fulfilling his responsibility upon Earth, Unas communes with Earth’s brightest stars in our Celestial Sphere. Let it be known: this is true information on our stars that stems from Earth’s oldest known liturgy (a complete religious text carved throughout 5 chambers of Una’s Pyramid).
Okay, time for simple information about the stars. These days most of us live in cities with a lot of light “pollution” where we may see few stars. Yet the brightest stars we see are part of known constellations, conceived from the brighter star groups. Astronomers provide us with good information on stars that we can see. Almost all of these stars are in our Milky Way Galaxy and are pretty close (i.e. compared to star-like light of the distant Andromeda Galaxy in the constellation of Andromeda). When looking at the Andromeda Galaxy (that looks like a star from Earth), we are actually looking at light 2.5 million light years away. A lot of information exists on our closest and brightest stars, being only 8 and 4 light year away – forming a type of perimeter around us and our star (the sun). The distance and brightness information on our 50 brightest stars is interesting. With 20 stars in the less than 100 light years away; 27 stars more and 100 light years distant, with 3 stars about 1300, 1800, and 3200 light years away.
For the sake of simplicity, astronomers tell us that our Sun is a star and like most stars, consisting mainly of hydrogen and about 10% helium (as plasma). This information comes from the atomic spectrum of absorption and emission lines of star light. There is some information on stars that many do not know. A large number of our brightest stars are actually double stars (both binary stars and multiple star systems). There is incredibly fascinating information on stars around us, like Carbon Stars the size of Earth. Actually our brightest star (Sirius) is a “double star” (binary star) with a Yellow Star (Sirius A) like our Sun and a Carbon star (Sirius B) the size of Earth. (Note, Carbon Stars are also called a “white dwarf stars.”) You can also find information on Earth-sized Carbon Stars as “Planetary Nebula,” stars surrounded by a lot of dust and globulars creating nebula-like forms.)
According to information from Astronomers, we are surrounded by Giant Stars, (the largest ones called SuperGiant stars) whose hydrogen gas atmospheres can reach the distance of our Earth orbit around our Sun star. (See Deneb.) Active astronomers are also searching for, finding, and sharing a lot of information about failed stars also called “brown dwarf stars”. These “failed stars” are like our gaseous planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, unable to shine, yet with simple hydrogen and helium atmospheres like our Sun. These days you can find failed stars on the lists of “extra-solar planets.” (Note, from popular astronomers like Carl Sagan, many actively search for possible life on other planets. See the SETI program, “Searching for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence.”)
There is so much amazing information on about our stars, like Star Clusters with 1000s to 100,000s of various stars, yet the information on Neutron Stars is truly powerful. Neutron stars are pure matter, (void of positive and negative polarities found in other stars, or all of physical matter). In these Neutron Stars, almost of all of the space in atoms are removed. It is like condensing our entire Sun to a 10-20 kilometer core, about the length of small cities. Active Neutron Stars pulsate like rapid lighthouses or very quick heartbeats. The precursor star to the Crab Supernova “exploded” in 1054 A.D. Many cultures around the world recorded this “New Star.” Based on the information of stars and the Celestial Sphere that people understood almost 1000 years ago, this bright “sign” in the heavens would amaze, even confirm awakenings within various cultures able to witness the apparent birth of a bright New Star. Yet, the brightness of this New Supernova Star fades through the months, disappearing from sight after 21 months. (The Celestial Cosmology will provide plenty of Spiritual information on Neutron Stars, and all significant stars and star forms.)
Let us wrap up this basic information on Stars (from Spiritual Astronomy) with Nebula star-like light filled with their molecular dust cloud star-forming regions. We can continue with the active, expanding Nebula around the Crab Pulsar (a Supernova Remnant), then the Great Orion Nebula, and finish with the Great Andromeda galaxy.
The Crab Nebula is a star-like light that surrounds a pulsating Neutron Star. (This fuzzy light can be seen with binoculars, and in 1771 was given the first M1 “object” designation for the Messier Catalogue.) To get an idea about the Crab Neutron Stars and Nebula, condense all the space of our Solar System into a core Neutron Star Space of 10 kilometers. Supernova explosions eject (reject) matter, yet the power of its Pulsar seems to attract matter from the galaxy in the creation of new light. This Neutron Star core fits into the space of a small city, while its nebula extends to fill the empty space around us (to about 6 light years out). Here we could see an bright ring of X-ray Light at a 10,000 A.U distant (10,000 further than our 1 A.U. Earth Orbit). This Ring has a 1 Light Year orbit. We would see a visible light “knot” of energy 1000 A.U. from the Neutron Star (in our line of sight); then an ever changing “sprite” ball of star-like light. Yes Spiritual Astronomy looks at all the information on Stars from a spiritual perspective. How do stars and the power of light relate to us and the reality of Earth through Earth’s 1000s of years of recorded history - especially our “Light Year” time space on Earth? ( With Earth traveling 30 km/sec. our Light Year requires 10,000 years. )
Many people in the Northern Hemisphere can recognize the Orion constellation in the winter skies. The fuzzy light in the center star of the Sword is not 1 star but active star forming regions of the Great Orion Nebula about 1500 light years away. [Note that the constellation we call Orion, Ancient Egyptians understood as their Christ-like God Osiris, with his Wife Isis, often seen represented as the Sirius Star.] What is so amazing is that the Orion Nebula (in the Orion Nebula Complex) is the largest molecular (hydrogen) star forming regions in our Milky Way Galaxy. This is much different from a similar sized Galaxy, the Great Andromeda Galaxy.
Yeah, that fuzzy star-like light in the Constellation of Andromeda is the furthest we can see with our natural eyes. It is like a perfected version of our Milky Way Galaxy with all some 40-60 of its molecular dust clouds neatly arranged around its double nucleus. If we study astronomy from a spiritual perspective, God’s creation and Light from all stars makes complete sense with Scot Aaron’s Celestial Cosmology. Ultimately, all “En-lightened” individuals, being “One” with God (yes God’s Love and Intelligence) will realize we are the Light. Ultimately, a “resurrected” body can be thought of as a Celestial Body. Plug-In to this Celestial Cosmology; Enlighten Earth; yes even for our Earth Star.
