The Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram is a tool that shows relationships and

The Hertzsprung-Russell diagram (HR diagram) is one of the most important
tools in the study of stellar evolution. Developed independently in the early 1900s
The Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram is a graphical tool that astronomers use to
classify stars according to their luminosity, spectral type, color, temperature and ...
These diagrams, called the Hertzsprung-Russell or HR diagrams, plot luminosity
in solar units on the Y axis and stellar temperature on the X axis, as shown ...
The Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram is a plot of luminosity vs temperature, except
that the temperature is decreasing to the right on the horizontal axis.
