- Stellar aberration is an astronomical phenomenon defined as an apparent motion of the heavenly bodies due to a combination of the motion of the Earth and the finite velocity of light.
- A stellar association is a very loose star cluster, looser than both open clusters and globular clusters.
- Stellar astronomy is the study of stars and the phenomena exhibited by the various forms/developmental stages of stars. Timeline of stellar astronomy
- Stellar atmosphere. Different stars have different atmospheres.
- A stellar black hole is a black hole formed by the collapse of a massive star at the end of its lifetime.
- Stellar cartography. In astronomy, a term used to refer to the mapping of stars, nebula, and other interstellar phonomena.
- Stellar classification is a classification of stars based initially on photospheric temperature and its associated spectral characteristics, and subsequenly refined in terms of other characteristics.
- Stellar dynamics is the branch of astrophysics which describes in a statistical way the collective motions of stars subject to their mutual gravity.
- A stellar engine is a hypothetical propulsion device that employs a significant part of a star's radiation to change the star's velocity (literally: an engine for a star).
- Stellar evolution is the sequence of changes that a star undergoes during its lifetime, the millions or billions of years during which it emits light and heat.

- Stellar nucleosynthesis is the collective term for the nuclear reactions taking place in stars to build the nuclei of the heavier elements.
- Stellar parallax is the change of angular position of two stars relative to each other as seen from earth, due to the different orbital positions of the Earth.
