In ancient times it was named I Antares for a rival of Ares, the Greek god of war. It marches up, over and down the sky in the constellation Scorpio. Each The spectrum of Antares shows fluted bands, fading toward the reds. This reveals the presence of titanium oxide and qualifies Antares as an M type star. Other signatures on its spec- trum reveal lots of metallic atoms, few calcium ions and mere traces cf hydrogen. M type stars range in temperature from 2.000 degrees to 3.000 de- charted its destiny.

RYAN i thin glowing gases would spread of Antares, astronomers agree. B rfj f that we see what we think we J see. It looks like a giant red star, and so it Is. Actually, Antares is a super- giant star, more than 300 times wider than our sun and almost 2.000 times more brilliant. Its distance from us is estimated to be 250 light years, which means that we see it as it was 2V4 centuries ago. Its light takes all that time to reach us. As stars go. Antares is a mere in- fant. Estimates of its age run from less than one million to: no more than a few million j i and Venus to just outside the orbit of the earth. We would be swalled up inside a red super- giant. So Antares is one star that does not fool the eye. It is in- deed a red supergiant, Other supergiants are bigger and more luminous but because of distance they appear dimmer. The largest one known is big enough lo engulf the center of the solar system to far beyond as merely the fifth brightest constellation their birthdays in billions. Stellar astronomers classify stars in groups, based on the spectra of their blazing gases. Each chemical leaves its iden- tifying marks on the rainbow bands of the light spectrum.
