The Sun compared to a white dwarf, Sirius, Rigel and Arcturus
Stars Compared
Stars come in many sizes and colours, as this diagram for my Illustrated Atlas of the Universe shows. On the bottom right are Arcturus (orange giant), Rigel (blue giant), Sirius A (blue dwarf) and the Sun (yellow dwarf). Meanwhile on the left at the top the Sun is shown blown up and compared with Proxima Centauri (a red dwarf) and Sirius B (a white dwarf).
