Why do stars Twinkle???

Did you know....

Stars closer to the horizon appear to twinkle more than stars that are overhead - because the light of stars near the horizon has to travel through more air than the light of stars overhead and therefore subject to more refraction. Also, planets do not usually twinkle, because they are so close to us; they appear big enough that the twinkling is not noticeable (except when the air is extremely turbulent).

Stars would not appear to twinkle if we looked at them from outer space (or from a planet/moon that didn't have an atmosphere). Maybe that's why the first Star Marina fell to the sea - to be able to see stars twinkle!

Little known facts about the ocean, etc.

Did you know....

80% of all life on earth is found under the ocean surface and the oceans contain 99% of the living space on the planet. 85% of the area and 90% of the volume constitute the dark, cold environment we call the deep sea. The average depth of the ocean is 3,795 m or 3.8 km (12,451 ft or 2.4 miles). The average height of the land is 840 m (2,756 ft).

Luminous lanterneye fish are on only known fish that have the ability to turn their lights off and on at will.

The comet fish has an 'eye' near its tail. If a predator strikes there, the comet fish is in less danger than if it struck its real eye.

Did you know:

- A starfish isn't really a fish at all. It's part of a group of creatures called echinoderms.

- Starfish are also sometimes called seastars.

- Starfish don't always have 5 arms. Some have four, six and even more!

-Starfish can regrow an arm if it is torn off or damaged. Sometimes, a whole new starfish will grow!

- Starfish are meat eaters. The "crown of thorns seastar" eats coral reefs and has become very destructive in some places. Some eat other starfish

- Starfish are very slow moving, but can move in any direction.

- Starfish have no brain.

- Starfish can change color.

- Starfish arms are covered in little tube feet and use them to eat, hunt and move. The feet are made of suction cups.

- There are more that 2,000 species (types) of starfish.

- The smallest starfish is only 1-2 cm wide. The largest are more than 60 cm wide!

- And most important to Marina and her friends - starfish dry out VERY fast if out of the water. So, if you find a starfish lying out on the beach, get it into the water quickly. And if you find one in a tidal pool - when you finish saying hello, please remember to put it back in the water.

The Seahorse

Pegasus and his mares come in a variety of different colors. Real seahorses come in different colors and can change color to help them blend into their surroundings for safety. Read on to find out more about these legendary little sea creatures.

Seahorses don't really light up, but they do some pretty amazing things.

Did you know:

- A seahorse is a true fish. It uses its fins to move, just like other fish, and is related to the pipefish.

- There are about 35 species of seahorse. They all live in warm or tropical water.

- Seahorses like to live near the shore, often in beds of seaweed, seagrass or coral.

- Seahorses use their tails to attach themselves to grass, coral or seagrass so they won't float away.

- Seahorses swim upright.

- Seahorses have no teeth! They use their snouts to suck up plankton, brine shrimp and fish larva, and swallow them whole.

- The smallest seahorse is only 2 inches in length; the largest is 14 inches long.

- The most amazing fact - (just ask Pegasus) - the male has a pouch like a kangaroo where the baby seahorses grow until it is time for them to be born. It is the male, not the female seahorse who gives birth and cares for the young seahorses!

- And the most important fact for Pegasus and his friends - seahorses living in the ocean are wild creatures. They may be cute, but should never be handled. They are fish - not horses- so if you see them - look, but don't touch!
