Question: Mnemonic for classes of stars

  1. Aug 18, 2005 #1
    It's used to remember the order from brightest (hottest) stars to the dimmest (coldest stars).

    I remember that it starts with


    then in the middle it maybe be: " Be It A Fine..."

    Boy/Girl, Kiss Me!

    So the order is like O .... B G K M

    It's driving me nuts; please help me!

    If you include all three of the smallest (R,N,S) it is
    Oh Be A Fine Girl Kiss Me Right Now Sweetie.
    O, B, A, F, G, K, M, R, N, S.
