You Ask! We Count!

Number of visible stars

How many visible stars are there?

Not known

There are many controversies when it comes to the number of visible stars.  Keep in mind that it is hard to resist counting the stars.  Some people say that you might be able to get to count up almost 9,000 stars.  Needless to say, with a good pair of binoculars, that number jumps to about 200,000.  This is definitely something.  Keep in mind that
a small telescope, capable of resolving magnitude 13 stars will let you count up to 15 million stars.
