Caption: Figure 2.

Dereddened color–absolute–magnitude diagram, MV vs. ﹩{\left(B-V\right)}_{0}﹩, for the yellow PAGB star BD+14°3061 (red) and the PAGB star in the globular cluster M79 (blue). Also plotted is the color–magnitude diagram for M79 from Bond et al. (2016) (black dots). The location of the pulsational instability strip is marked. The M79 star is, by far, the visually brightest member of its cluster, and BD+14°3061 is a nearly identical field analog, although slightly cooler and lying within the instability strip.
