The J reveals that a coordinate system known as J is being used, while the and are coordinates similar to the latitude and longitude codes used on Earth. Together with the radial velocity, the total velocity can be calculated. The result is a supernova. Different elements or compounds absorb and emit different colors or wavelengths of light, and by studying a star's spectrum, one can divine what its composition might be.
At times, enough gas builds up for the dwarf to collapse, leading its carbon to fuse nearly instantly and the dwarf to explode in a Type I supernova, which can outshine a galaxy for a few months. The time a star spends on the main sequence depends primarily on the amount of fuel it has and the rate at which it fuses it. The components of motion of a star consist of the radial velocity toward or away from the Sun, and the traverse angular movement, which is called its proper motion. Astronomers now often use constellations in the naming of stars.
Since iron nuclei are more tightly bound than any heavier nuclei, any fusion beyond iron does not produce a net release of energy. When they eventually run out of hydrogen, they contract into a white dwarf and decline in temperature. Massive stars consume their fuel very rapidly and are short-lived. It has been a long-held assumption that the majority of stars occur in gravitationally bound, multiple-star systems. After exhausting the hydrogen at the core these stars become supergiants and go on to fuse elements heavier than helium.
Instead, they should eventually just cool to become white dwarfs and then black dwarves. The activity levels of slowly rotating stars tend to vary in a cyclical manner and can shut down altogether for periods of time.
