Why Do Some Stars Appear To Twinkle?

When you view the night sky, you will occasionally see a star that appears to twinkle. This is because light from the star is being scattered by tiny particles in the atmosphere. The extent of this scattering depends on how much moisture is present in the air, and it typically increases during storms or during high humidity periods.
