Typically, stellar is an adjective referring to one or more stars. See also:

  • The Narrabri Stellar Intensity Interferometer was the first astronomical instrument to measure the diameters of a large number of stars at visible wavelengths.
  • Stellar aberration is an astronomical phenomenon defined as an apparent motion of the heavenly bodies due to a combination of the motion of the Earth and the finite velocity of light.
  • A stellar association is a very loose star cluster, looser than both open clusters and globular clusters.
  • Stellar astronomy is the study of stars and the phenomena exhibited by the various forms/developmental stages of stars. Timeline of stellar astronomy
  • Stellar atmosphere. Different stars have different atmospheres.
  • A stellar black hole is a black hole formed by the collapse of a massive star at the end of its lifetime.
  • Stellar cartography. In astronomy, a term used to refer to the mapping of stars, nebula, and other interstellar phonomena.
  • Stellar classification is a classification of stars based initially on photospheric temperature and its associated spectral characteristics, and subsequenly refined in terms of other characteristics.
  • Stellar dynamics is the branch of astrophysics which describes in a statistical way the collective motions of stars subject to their mutual gravity.
  • A stellar engine is a hypothetical propulsion device that employs a significant part of a star's radiation to change the star's velocity (literally: an engine for a star).
  • Stellar evolution is the sequence of changes that a star undergoes during its lifetime, the millions or billions of years during which it emits light and heat.
  • Stellar Loussier is a fictional character in the anime series Gundam SEED Destiny.
  • Stellar magnitude. The apparent magnitude (m) of a star, is a measure of its apparent brightness; that is, the amount of light received from the star.
  • Stellar navigation
  • Stellar near-collision
  • Stellar nucleosynthesis is the collective term for the nuclear reactions taking place in stars to build the nuclei of the heavier elements.
  • Stellar parallax is the change of angular position of two stars relative to each other as seen from earth, due to the different orbital positions of the Earth.
  • Stellar population. Stars can be grouped into two general types called Population I and Population II.
  • Stellar spectra/Stellar spectroscopy
  • Stellar Stone LLC, a Russian game developer.
  • Stellar structure
  • Stellar system is a grouping of one or more stars, with (sometimes) non-stellar planetary systems, having a common centre of gravity.
  • Stellar wind. A solar wind is a stream of charged particles (i.e., a plasma) which are ejected from the upper atmosphere of a star.
  • The Combination of Stellar Influences is a significant astrological reference and research text.
