In astronomy, star (TR:9) (LH:3) (TL:12), from Greek asteria (αστέρι) (NE:616), meaning "[decipher]", is a gravitationally bound state of elements, predominately hydrogen and helium, thermonuclear reacting, and releasing heat and light in the process.

- “I love this place at night. The stars. There’s no right or wrong in them. There’s just there.”
- — Oliver Stone (1986), Platoon (character: Elias)
