What's the colour of the stars?

If you asked someone what is the colour of the stars, they would probably say white; they wouldn't be completely wrong; however, not all stars are white.

Go and take a look at the stars we have been talking about in previous posts; Betelgeuse (top left of Orion), Rigel (bottom right of Orion), Aldeberan (found by the following the imaginary line through the "belt" upwards to the right) and Sirius (found by the following the imaginary line through the "belt" downwards to the left).

Take a good careful look at these stars and in a future post we'll talk about their colours!
