Is the sun smaller than Betelgeuse?
Yes, the Sun is much smaller than Betelgeuse.
No. The sun is actually hotter than Betelgeuse, but much smaller.
Betelgeuse appears smaller than the sun because it is much farther away, by a factor of about 40 million.
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
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.
No. Betelgeuse has 950-1200 times the diameter of the Sun.
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.
No. While Betelgeuse is larger and brighter than the sun, it actually has a lower surface temperature.
yes! its brighter than our sun
Vega = 9,602 Kelvin The Sun = 5,778 Kelvin Betelgeuse = 3,500 Kelvin
Yeah, the Suns radiant pressure is more increased then Betelgeuse.
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.
Yes, Betelgeuse has a radius about 1200 times the size of the sun, and Antares is about 800 times the radius of the 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.
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.
Simply because Rigel is hotter.
Yes, it has a radius about 1000 times the radius of the sun.
Size-wise, the Sun is to Betelgeuse as the Earth is to the Sun.
Betelgeuse is about 640 light-years from the sun.
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.
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.
No, Betelgeuse is too far away to have any effect on the sun.
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.
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 (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, large stars like Betelgeuse only last a few million years. Our sun is older, at around 4.5 billion years, and there are many stars even older than our sun.
It's around 20 times heavier than our Sun.
Betelgeuse boasts the diameter greater than the orbit of Jupiter. It has a mass of around 20 times the mass of the Sun, and its luminosity is almost 200,000 times greater than the Sun. So really, it is one of the biggest and brightest stars ever observed.
Very many of them are much larger than the Sun, for example Aldeberan, Betelgeuse, Antares, Deneb, Rigel, etc.
Betelgeuse is about 18 or 19 times the mass of our sun.
The circumference of Betelgeuse is about 1180 times the circumference of our sun.
The radius of Betelgeuse is 1180 times the radius of our sun.
A red supergiant has about 10 -> 20 times more mass than the Sun. Betelgeuse for example has a mass of about 18 times than of our own Sun.
Betelgeuse has a radius approximately 1,000 times greater than our own Sun. See link for more information
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.
yes all planets are smaller than the sun
The Moon is 400 times smaller than the Sun.
sun is not smaller than earth
With a radius of 1180 times the size of our sun, Betelgeuse has a volume of 1.64 billion times the volume of our sun.
No, asteroids are smaller than planets, and planets are smaller than the sun.
The earth is smaller than the sun but larger than the moon
The star called Betelgeuse is a red giant. It is about 700 times the size of the sun, and its temperature is lower than that of the sun's, at around 6,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
Yes, smaller than the sun by a long shot and smaller than the earth less so
Betelgeuse is ENORMOUS as compared to the Sun's size. Its diameter may be 1000 TIMES larger than our sun.
Yes, the earth is smaller than the sun. Though the sun is a star, it is far bigger than earth.
Absolutely, there is Sirius, Pollux, Arcturus, Rigel, Aldebaran, Betelgeuse, and Antares.
Many stars are bigger, but Betelgeuse is one of them, a red giant.
