The apparent brightness of a star viewed from Earth varies based both on the type of star and its distance from the planet. The apparent magnitude differs from a star's absolute magnitude, which describes its brightness from a set distance, rather than the varying distances of stars seen from Earth. The lower the apparent magnitude, the brighter the star is as seen from Earth.
