Can you see colours in the stars? Well, thanks physics!
The surface temperature of a Star determines the colour. The cooler the temp, the redder the star - and the warmer, the more blue it becomes. (Thus, blue is faster than red!) Our sun (Sol) is a main sequence star (aka average) that many believe is yellow, orange or even red. This is not entirely true .... Sol is white, emitting all colours.
It’s when you see the sun through our atmosphere (e.g. sunrise, sunset) that the colour appears to change (due to short wavelength colours being scattered out by our atmosphere). See if you can spot a red or blue star tonight. Betelgeuse and Sirius are two very bright stars near each other currently in our night sky. One is red and the other a brilliant white-blue. You can’t miss it!
Physics rocks. 🤓🤟🏼✨✨✨
