Astronomy:Yellow giant

From HandWiki

A yellow giant is a luminous giant star of low or intermediate mass (roughly 0.5–12 solar masses (M)) in a late phase of its stellar evolution. The outer atmosphere is inflated and tenuous, making the radius large and the surface temperature as low as 5,200-7500 K. The appearance of the yellow giant is from white to yellow, including the spectral types F and G. About 10.6 percent of all giant stars are yellow giants.
