How far away are the stars?

 Q:   Ask a Question about How far away are the stars?       
How far away are the stars? The nearest star to the Earth is our own Sun, which is 152 million km away. After the Sun, the closest stars are Proxima Centauri and Barnard's Star.
The farthest stars in our Galaxy are 80,000 light-years away. Other galaxies, each one containing millions of stars, are much more distant.

Light is distorted as it passes through the atmosphere, making stars twinkle.
