Is betelgeuse bigger than the Sun?
Yes, it has a radius about 1000 times the radius of the sun.
Betelgeuse is much bigger than the Sun.
No, Betelgeuse is huge not huger than Antares. Its about 30 times bigger than the sun!
Most definitely. Jupiter is a planet and Betelgeuse is a star. Our sun is much larger than Jupiter and Betelgeuse is much larger than our sun.
Yes, Betelgeuse has a radius about 1200 times the size of the sun, and Antares is about 800 times the radius of the sun.
Betelgeuse is much bigger, in size than Rigel - about 12 times. but only just smaller in terms of mass. Betelgeuse has a radius of about 936 times that of our Sun Rigel has a radius of about 78 times that of our Sun Betelgeuse has a mass of 18 times that of our Sun Rigel has a mass of 17 times that of our Sun
The radius of the star Betelgeuse is around 1,000 times larger than that of the Sun, and has a mass of roughly 20 times that of the Sun. So, indeed it is a very large star.
Yes, the Sun is much smaller than Betelgeuse.
Absolutely, there is Sirius, Pollux, Arcturus, Rigel, Aldebaran, Betelgeuse, and Antares.
Many stars are bigger, but Betelgeuse is one of them, a red giant.
No. The sun is actually hotter than Betelgeuse, but much smaller.
Betelgeuse is about 1,180 times larger the Sun. So Betelgeuse is about 128,620 times bigger than Earth. So as a rough approximation about 2,127,774,087,928,000 Earths could fit into Betelgeuse. That's 2 quadrillion.
Compared to a supernova, the Sun is like the size of a pea. Super-giant stars like Betelgeuse are thousands of times larger than the Sun. If the Sun were the size of Betelgeuse, then Mercury, Venus and the Earth would all be INSIDE it.
No. Betelgeuse has 950-1200 times the diameter of the Sun.
Betelgeuse (Alpha Orionis) is approximately 1,000 times larger than our Sun, whereas Deneb (Alpha Cygni) is estimated to be only 200-300 times the size of our Sun.
No. While Betelgeuse is larger and brighter than the sun, it actually has a lower surface temperature.
The Sun is a yellow dwarf - Betelgeuse is a red supergiant The Sun has a spectral type of G2V, Betelgeuse is M2 Betelgeuse is about 1,000 times larger than our Sun. Betelgeuse will explode as a supernova our Sun won't. Our Sun has a temperature of about 5,700 Kelvin, Betelgeuse is 3,500 K. Betelgeuse is only a few million years old, the Sun is 4.5 billion years old.
yes! its brighter than our sun
No, it is not.
Betelgeuse appears smaller than the sun because it is much farther away, by a factor of about 40 million.
No. The biggest star ever discovered is the VY Canis Majoris, a red hypergiant with a radius of easily 2000 times bigger than that of the Sun. That is more than twice the radius of Betelgeuse. Also, the mass of VY Canis Majoris is around twice that of Betelgeuse.
Vega = 9,602 Kelvin The Sun = 5,778 Kelvin Betelgeuse = 3,500 Kelvin
There are many stars bigger than Betelgeuse, to many to mention here, but the biggest currently known is VY Canis Majoris [See related question}
You can see stars that are bigger than the sun. About half the stars you see are bigger. Generally speaking, any orange or red star is. Just to give an example, look at Orion's left shoulder, Betelgeuse. This is one of the larger stars we can see.
Yeah, the Suns radiant pressure is more increased then Betelgeuse.
Antares has a radius of about 800 solar radii whereas Betelgeuse has a radius of about 1,180 solar radii. Both are massive compared to our Sun. See related link for a pictorial comparison.
A Red Giant Stars that are much bigger than the sun are the giants and of course the super giants, which are the stars with the biggest size. If you want a specific one, Betelgeuse or Antares would be good choices.
Betelgeuse give off more light than the Sun because it is much larger than the Sun, and the star's core is much larger and more powerful than the Sun's core.
Our sun has an absolute magnitude of 4.83, compared to Betelgeuse's absolute magnitude of -6.05. This means that Betelgeuse is more than 10 magnitudes brighter than our sun.
Because our Sun is a lot closer. 93 million miles instead of 3.7 quadrillion. (3,762,239,880,000,000 miles)
Betelgeuse is one of the larger stars, while Barnard's star is just a little red dwarf star. So, yes- Betelgeuse is far larger than Barnard's.
Betelgeuse doesn't revolve around the sun. It is a star, even larger than the sun, and much too far away for the sun to have much effect on it.
Size-wise, the Sun is to Betelgeuse as the Earth is to the Sun.
Betelgeuse is about 640 light-years from the sun.
No, the Earth is not bigger than the Sun. The Sun is 109x bigger than the Earth.
The Sun is much bigger than the Earth.
Not really. Its mass is 1.8 times that of the Sun, which is a mid-sized star. So while Altair is bigger than the Sun, it is not in the same category as Betelgeuse as an example of a giant star.
Yes, stars are relatively much more bigger than our earth. Sun, is the closest star to the earth. Sun's diameter is around 109 times that of the earth. Sun is one of the medium sized stars. We cannot imagine the size of the red giants like Aldebaran , Betelgeuse , etc. They are much more larger and massive than the sun also.
No, Betelgeuse is too far away to have any effect on the sun.
why is the sun bigger than earth
The sun is bigger than the Earth. The sun is approximately 109 times bigger than Earth.
Arcturus is bigger than the sun.
With a radius of over 1000 times our sun, the volume of Betelgeuse is over a billion times our sun. So, our sun could fit into Betelgeuse over a billion times.
Betelgeuse. Polaris A has a radii of about 30 solar radii. Betelgeuse has a solar radii of about 1180.
Their are some other stars bigger than the sun
The stars that are bigger than the sun and earth are the stars that are bigger than the sun and those stars are Sirius,Pollux and Arcturus
It's around 20 times heavier than our Sun.
The Sun is bigger than the Earth.
No planet could ever come close to the size of Betelgeuse.
The Sun is 8 light MINUTES away, while Betelgeuse is 600 light-YEARS away. Even though Betelgeuse is hundreds of times more massive, and millions of times brighter, it is much further AWAY.
The sun is bigger than all the planets in the solar system.
