Blue Giant Star

A blue giant star seen from the surface of a nearby world
Blue Giant Star (2013)
This classic space art example was commissioned for one of my recent books, Cosmic Menagerie: A Visual Journey Through the Universe. It imagines the view from the surface of a rocky world orbiting a blue giant star. These, such as Rigel in Orion, have surface temperatures of around 10,000K and diameters between 5 and 10 times that of the Sun.
