Be star

A Be star is a type B star in the spectral classification of stars, with emission lines instead of the usual absorption lines. If their spectra are highly varied, they usually have a strong alpha H emission line. They are very bright (a million times brighter than the Sun), very hot (over 10,000 K), massive (nearly ten times the mass of the Sun), and spin at very high speed.
