During cosmic nucleogenesis of the elements, large amounts of neon are built up from the alpha-capture fusion process in stars.

Neon gives a distinct reddish-orange glow when used in low-voltage neon glow lamps, high-voltage discharge tubes and neon advertising signs.

LASER SHARP EYES

The red emission line from neon also causes the well known red light of helium–neon lasers.
