How many stars are in the universe?

The very distant galaxies are seen in their youth, hence numerous but with far fewer stars. The 2 trillion number of galaxies seems to be a reasonable extrapolation of the observations. But these galaxies will have less on average than our MW.

I enjoy thinking the star count for the observable universe is ....6.02x10E23! Not that I’m a mole lover. ;)

Hmmm. That‘s interesting. Give me a minute‘s worth of seconds to think about it. Better, give me an hour of minutes. I’ll use my 60 HZ clock to time me. :)

The number sequence for Titus-Bode are all divisible by 6, with Earth and beyond. [0.4 is then added after dividing the sequence by 10]
