    I know, you can understand why some people don't want to believe it though, it's a bit of a scary thought.

    Maybe to some, but it helps to know that if other beings are out there and one day we'll make first contact, honestly they probably wouldn't try to destroy us, because if they could, or wanted to, they probably would have hundreds if not thousands of years ago.

    It would have to be a long long time before they possibly made contact. If you think how people are now, the governments would probably try to attack them and people either wouldn't believe it or everyone would freak out.

    Hmm.... but I can distinguish planets. I can find the planets in the sky I a heart beat. Idk, maybe I am just crazy.

    Probably, since common knowledge says that aliens would just invade and completely destroy us... I'm sure that other species have a "prime directive"(Star Trek reference, I know) That tellsat what point in a species' advancement that first contact can be allowed...

    The planets of our solar system, yes, some quite easily, but exoplanets no way.

    Thanks, heh, any cretiqing on the realism?

    Newest Molten planet

    Other, older, but still cool, planets:

    Star types:

    Main sequence:

    O0-9 V V[hottest and bluest, harsh to life]
    B0-9 V [very hot and bright, mildly harsh to life]
    A0-9 V [blue-white, and just on the top end of where life can exist around but rare]
    F0-9 V [white, very bright and difficult for life to take hold but easily possible]
    G0-9 V [yellow, sun like, life harboring]
    K0-9 V [orange, dim but easiest to harbor life]
    M0-9 V [red, very dim, possible to harbor life for over a trillion years]

    Brown Dwarf:
    [all very hard to harbor life]

    L [hottest brown dwarves that nearly made it to the thermonuclear fusion limit to become red dwarves
    T [cooler, methane-allowing brown dwarves]
    Y [very coolest, ammonia-allowing brown dwarves that cross over the 13 jupiter-mass limit defines an object as being a brown dwarf or planet]

    Wolf-Rayet:
    [bright, dying supergiant stars that their helium core is exposed]

    (the classes don't have much distinction other than spectral lines so I won't put them here, or will later in another post)

    "Slash" stars:

    Wolf Raynet stars with O-star-type spectra

    Giants:

    O1-9 III [rare, very blue giant and young stars]
    B1-9 III [rare, blue and young stars]
    A1-9 III [quite rare, blue-white young stars]
    F1-9 III [very very rare white and old stars]
    G1-9 III [very rare yellow and old stars]
    K1-9 III [common, old stars soon to become red giants or to eject their outer layers]
    M1-9 III [red giants, some dying, that are soon to expel their outer layers in a nova]

    Hypergiants are all ^ those classes except they only occupy the "[letter]0 III" position.

    Other Giants are class C (carbon-rich) Class S (Zirconium-rich) and those in-between, as MS and CS

    White dwarf classifications become very entangled so I'll only elaborate them by request, but the main letter all white dwarves go by is D

    Neutron stars are class Q

    Black holes are class X

    There are also lots of hypothetical types of extreme and degenerate stars but I won't put all of them here...
