The astronomer (and the rebellion) in me always comes to a hiccup when this particular term comes up.
Does anyone actually know what "one order of magnitude" really means? Wink
One order of magnitude is the 5th root of 100 or ca 2,511886431509580111085032067799328 (according to my DM42)
Astronomically, stars are odered by brightness in magnitudes.
A magnitude 6 star is the faintest one (normally) can see with the naked eye in a lightunpolluted sky. A magnitude 1 star is 100 times brighter. Each magnitude is determined by ~2,512^x where x starts with 0 at mag. 6 (2,512^0=1) and 5 (2,512^5=~100) at mag. 1. So, a mag. 6 star is "1" bright and a mag 1 star is "100" bright.

Star magnitudes

Yes, and a continous merry christmas and a coming prosperous new year to all.
