Does this take into account the stage of the sun's life cycle. Are those rather large suns in the Red Giant phase of their development. If so, they are about to die out or supernova.

Nice! BTW, Abe's list puts Betelgeuse as larger than Antares. That doesn't match the pictures. Which one is wrong?

Antares is pea sized compared to this: "Astronomers have identified a massive comet-like structure - spanning a whopping three million light years " http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/06/12/great_balls_of_fire/

This has obviously been faked. In the third pic notice how close the planets are to the sun? They would easily burn up at that proximity. Nice try.
