Okay. Here's the question I'm sure has been eating away at all of us (Or at least me): What really is starfire? So. Let's look at what we know. We know every hundred years a black foal is born, and when it survives, the "star" on the sky sticks around. On this foal's first birthday (should it even survive until it's first birthday) the starfire will be transferred to the foal. But here's the thing; it can't be the fire from a star. Essentially, that is what it means.
And we all know no star can get that close to Earth without blowing all of us to oblivion. (Burning us up)
So, then, what is it?
And why does it stick around every time the black foal is born?
From what has been said in the book, some believe it a comet. But how could a comet get so close to Earth and then suddenly disappear when the so called starfire goes into the black foal?
I have another theory though. Some people may have already thought i this, but I believe it may be sunLIGHT. A light from another star, or the sun. Now, this doesn't make a whole lot of sense. But here's something that makes a little more sense than these other two theories.
I believe that whatever this starfire is could potentially be attracted by Earth's gravity and magnetic field. Now, I don't know too much about our magnetic field, but I think this could be a more logical explanation. Perhaps it could be a comet, or just another star's sunlight.
Please your thoughts on this in the comments below, and please try not to be too harsh when correcting my whole magnetic field theory majigger. (I'm talking to you Flamefrost x DUN DUN DUUUUN x...... XD)
I hope this wasn't too cheesy! :(
