I proudly present you "Sirius B"
, my submission to the contest.
This was quite hard to achieve, because it's actually the first time I seriously tried to do some space related stuff.

____With a mass nearly equal to the Sun's, Sirius B is one of the more massive white dwarfs known (0.98 solar mass.); it is almost double the 0.50.6 solar mass average. Yet that same mass is packed into a volume roughly equal to the Earth. The current surface temperature is 25,200 K. However, since there is no internal source of energy generation, Sirius B will steadily cool as the remaining heat is radiated into space over a period of more than two trillion years. [wiki]
