Caption: Supergiant star and Sun. Artwork comparing the sizes of a blue supergiant star (left) and the Sun (upper right). An inset compares the sizes of the Sun and Jupiter, the largest planet of the solar system. The little blue dot at right of Jupiter is about the size of the Earth on this scale. A blue supergiant star shines with a bright blue light because of its large mass. This also means that it burns out more quickly, being short-lived for a star. If it is massive enough, it will also suffer a different fate to that of the Sun, ending as a neutron star or black hole. The Sun is a medium- sized star that shines with a yellow light.
