Dreifacher Sonnenuntergang auf einer Welt, die einen Roten Zwergstern umkreist. Diese Szene soll die natürlichen Beleuchtungsverhältnisse in der Umgebung Roter Zwerge besser wiedergeben. Rote Zwerge sind nur leicht rötlich und wirken für das menschliche Auge immer noch wie eine fast weiße Lichtquelle. Weil Rote Zwerge sehr leuchtschwach sind, befindet sich die lebensfreundliche Zone nur wenige Millionen Kilometer vom Stern entfernt. Der Stern erschiene am Himmel größer als unsere Sonne.

Dieser Stern ist Teil eines Dreiergestirns. Er umkreist ein massiveres Zentralgestirn aus zwei sonnenähnlichen Sternen, die am Horizont zu sehen sind.

Triple sunset on a world orbiting a Red Dwarf star. This scene should capture the illumination from Red Dwarfs in a more natural way. Red Dwarfs are only slightly reddish in colour and would still appear almost white to the human eye. As they are very faint stars, the habitable zone would be only a couple of Million kilometers away from the star. The star would also appear bigger in the sky than our sun.

This star is part of a triple star system. It orbits a more massive central binary pair of two sun-like stars, visible at the horizon.

Thank you very much. :)

For this scene, I have looked up several models about how to visualize the light of a Red Dwarf star.

Great!
Now, an Earth-like planet in a Red Dwarfs habitable zone
is likely to get tidally locked to the star, isnt that so?   :hmm:

Yes, it will be locked. This will result in some bizarre climate and weather phenomena.
