A New Dawn?

This is what I imagine a very cold (~2000K) red star might look like at sunrise. I’m not sure if it matters whether it is a red giant or red dwarf — the system tries to size the star semi-realistically according to the temperature of the star and the climate of the local planet, so it should have about the same apparent size either way. A blue star would always look very small, even though these stars are always giants, because if you were ever close enough that it looked big, it would just sterilize you.

The mysterious green object in the upper right corner is a cyborg planet killer. It’s really big and powerful, so don’t **** it off.

In other news, for my United Statesian readers, it’s election day! All you have to do is show up, wait in line a little while, and draw a little line to the right arrowhead, or pull a lever or however it’s done in your state. Try not to **** it up. Unless you have electronic voting machines, in which case the cyborgs will take care of it, so don’t bother.

If you have astrophysics brains and don’t mind feeding them to my zombie code monkey, maybe I can make more realistic stars?
