Featured Articles represent the best work on Wikipedia and are reviewed by multiple editors for clarity, accuracy and coverage. You can determine which articles are Featured by looking for a bronze star in the upper right hand corner of the page.

Good Articles represent solidly above-average articles and are reviewed by one editor, using less stringent criteria than Featured Articles.

Both Good and Featured Articles stem from months of work from multiple editors, but they still can be incomplete or contain errors. However, what appears to be an error at first glance may be the result of many weeks of discussion. Jumping right into editing a Good or Featured Article without reading the talk page may result in your work being reverted, so take care when editing them.

While the articles are uncommon (together representing less than 1% of all content on Wikipedia), you can see a new Featured Article every day by visiting Wikipedia's main page.
