  Blue giant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In astronomy, a blue giant is a star with a spectral type of O or B and class of III (giant).
Blue giant is a misused term, as giant implies an advanced evolutionary state.
Other blue giants are merely misclassified hydrogen fusing dwarf stars, such as Spica or the Pleiades, their exceptional brightness making earlier astronomers believe they were elderly giants and the classification has simply stuck.

 Red giant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
According to the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram, a red giant is a large non-main sequence star of stellar classification K or M; so-named because of the reddish appearance of the cooler giant stars.
They are believed to be stars of near solar mass or higher which have exhausted the supply of hydrogen in their cores and switched to fusing hydrogen in a shell outside the core.
Stars of spectral types O through K are believed to become red giants (or supergiants in the case of O and B stars).

The V (visual magnitude) is the magnitude of the apparent brightness as seen by the naked eye and can be measured by photometry.
In early days, photometry was carried out by measuring the exposure of a star on a photographic plate that is more sensitive to the blue than it is to red.
This gives a measurement of star brightness weighted towards the blue end of the spectrum.
