1. The main sequence is a classification system for stars hassle on their brightness and colour.
2. Don’t think so. But I think it’ll become a red giant and consume the earth.
3. They twinkle from our perspective because we view them through the atmosphere of the earth. The air in the atmosphere moves and changes density which makes the stars look like they twinkle.
4. Mostly no. The stars  look close together from our perspective but in reality can be very far apart.
5. Looks like sunspots on the sun- slightly cooler patches on the surface of the sun.
