    Hi Jose

    There are lots of stars small and colder than our Sun. There a class of stars called Red Dwarfs that are smaller and cooler and redder. There's also a class of objects called Brown Dwarfs which are even smaller and cooler..they don't have enough mass to burn via fusion like our Sun.
