Question:
Do stars have shadows?


Replies:
Good question, but no, stars do not have shadows.

David Levy


I am not sure what your question really is, but a star is nothing more than like our Sun, only far away. A shadow happens when something is blocking the light source, and there is enough light coming from that source so we can actually see the blocking of that light.
