When God created the Universe, He placed three kinds of "lights" in the sky to provide information to man.  Stars must be pretty important, because fifteen books of the Bible address the innumerable heavenly bodies, beginning with their purpose as explained in Genesis 1:14-18:
"And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:  and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.  And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night:  He made the stars also.   And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good."

Nehemiah 4:21 - "So we labored in the work: and half of them held the spears from the rising of the morning till the stars appeared."
Job 3:9; 9:7; 22:12 - "Let the stars of the twilight thereof be dark; let it look for light, but have none; neither let it see the dawning of the day."  "Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars."  "Is not God in the height of heaven?  And behold the height of the stars, how high they are!"
Psalm 8:3; 136:9; 137:4; 148:3 - "When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained...?"  "The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth forever."  "He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names."  "Praise ye Him, sun and moon: praise Him, all ye stars of light."
Isaiah 13:10 - "For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine."
Jeremiah 31:35 - "Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is His name."
Ezekiel 32:7 - "And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light."
Daniel 12:3 - "And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever."
Joel 2:10; 3:15 - "The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining."  "The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining."
Amos 5:8 - "Seek Him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is His name."
Matthew 24:29 - "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken."
Mark 13:25 - "And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken."
Luke 21:25 - "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring."
Acts 27:20 - "And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away."
1 Corinthians 15:31 - "There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars:  for one star differeth from another star in glory."
Revelation 6:13 - "And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars."
Wise individuals pay attention to God's heavenly communication!
