The picture wrong. The Betelgeuse is bigger star like the Antares.
Betelgeuse is: 1180 x sun radius
Antares is: 800 x sun radius.

i find it amusing that this image has been thrown haphazardly around the internet so much that it's JPG artifacts are taking on a life of their own. Please, you people, stop stumbling this. It was cool the first 200 times I came across it, but now it's starting to get old.
Awesome reality check!
Antares is HUGE!
Its always good to see this sort of stuff. :)

augh, aliasing. Nicely pixelated. Next time don't use jpgs. *wince*
Presenting the astronomical bodies as balls on a table is much more interesting than seeing discs hanging side by side in space.
