Revelation 8:6-13 describe the first four trumpets. Watch for the similarities between these and the plagues of Egypt found in the book of Exodus. Remember that the plagues were directed to the Egyptian gods. A “third” is used in Zechariah but not in the same way as its use in Revelation. The star is called “Wormwood”. This star strikes a third of the water which because “wormwood” leading to the death of those who drink it.
