Types of Dwarf Stars
There are 5 different types of dwarfs stars: white, red, black, brown, and yellow. White dwarfs are the remains of a red giant star. Red dwarfs have less brightness and mass than white dwarfs. Black dwarfs are even less bright and massive than red dwarfs and give off no detectable radiation. Brown dwarfs are formed when insufficient mass allows for nuclear fusion to take place. Yellow dwarfs have mass comparable to the sun's.
Below is the most common type, a white dwarf star.
