    I'm not a big fan of wiki, but it has its uses. Scholarly research? No. List of stuff? Sure.

    List of brightest stars - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "This is not the same as a list of the brightest stars as seen with the naked eye" -- im looking for what is brightest based on what humans see

    Do you know how to use wiki? There are links to all kinds of things in that article.

    It says: "Below are listed the 91 brightest individual stars in order of their average apparent magnitudes in the visible spectrum as seen from Earth."

    The exceptions are a few multiple stars. As you asked for "the brightest star" then the answer is the Sun or Sirius (if you don't count the Sun).

    You asked for "brightest" star. That would be the Sun. It's the first thing listed in that article. If you want something else, follow the links in the article to something else. I'm not going to hold your hand.

    And stop spamming the forum with all these questions if you're not going to accept the answer.

    When I saw that you had posted to this thread, I assumed you were going to suggest Barbara Streisand.

    ...
    Could it really been so simple then, why did Mars just have to pass me by....if we had the chance to shuttle off again, space guy, would we.......could we.....

    Star walks....are not easy to forget, what's to floating to remember....we simply try to move our hips....

    SO it's the memories....of shooting stars and planets....when we redid our helmets .....of our own Star WALK......our...own...Starwalk!! (sung to "The Way We Were")
