in art we teach that red is warm and blue is cool but in space stars that are blue are considered the hottest. Temperature wise is blue hotter or is temperature as a indicator of color something that changes under different circumstances? I am trying to explain this to my students
Re: why do we view red as the hottest color but hottest stars are blue
