A typical Dwarf star, such as our own Sun, compared with giant and supergiant stars Aldebaran and Antares.
A star of roughly the same size as Earth's Sun, or smaller. 'Dwarf' is perhaps an unhappy
term; it is used simply to distinguish these stars from 'giants', and doesn't imply that they
are particularly small.
