Capella is one of the few bright stars that is yellow, like our Sun. Both Capella and the Sun are yellow because they have roughly the same surface temperature.
But the light from Capella actually comes from two separate stars. Both are yellow, and both lie about 43 light-years from Earth. Each star emits dozens of times more light than the Sun. In fact, any residents of the Capella system probably would take little notice of our Sun, which at Capella's distance would barely be visible to human eyes.
