Is this from a science fiction story?

Under what circumstances does "part of a star" have properties of an asteroid?... The primary properties of an asteroid are that they aren't a planet or comet, and they orbit the sun. Or is asteroid used in its literal meaning of "small star"? By star do you mean the Sun? Or a star in the same sense as the Sun?

A star in the sense of something massive enough to generate light.

Is it a red giant? A brown dwarf? A G-series star like the sun?

Anything to do with the theoretical Nemesis star that may be orbiting our sun?

Was the star on course to crash into our moon? Would the collision destroy the moon? Send it towards Earth?

summary--(correct me if I'm wrong)
a man who is retired navy and owns a telescope, sees a brown dwarf star on a crash course with the moon. Eventually this collision would cause the moon to collide with the earth. When people find out about this, they have a sense of peace. There is no war or fighting, the countries are united in trying to avert this disaster, and the rest prepare together for eventual death.


are they able to keep this from happening?
if no, is there something else we need to figure out?
do we need to know the specific science-fiction book or story this is from?

HInt: i think i might have put this on a little bit late. so i think i will spoil it.

spoil!


it is from the mini series IMPACT the piece of the brown dwarf is extremely magnetic and is throwing the moon into a crash course with earth, so they send up astronauts and use an electro magnet to reverse the polarity of the dwarf to throw it into the sun.
