Hello everyone,
what is the difference between "bright", "shine" and "sparkling"?
Can I say: "-this star is bright" or "this star is shining" or "this star is sparkling"?

Thank you.

Hello. When it comes to stars you can say all those adjectives. but, for example when you see a yellow dress, you can say that the dress is a bright yellow but I would not say "a sparkling yellow or shining yellow dress" because shine and sparkle relate more to gold, silver or diamond. you can say the sun is bright or shining but I wouldn't refer to the sun as sparkling.
Hope this helped a bit

Hola Lizz -

Stars shine, some of them brighter than others. And they may sparkle too, but usually we say they "twinkle."
