Awesome comparision
In the picture above, where do you think our Sun stands, beside all this other stars - all depicted here in perspective?
Our Sun is on the very far left.
VY Canis Major, the largest known star (a red hypergiant star located in the constellation Canis Major), is to the very right. VY Canis Major is a giant; between 1800 and 2100 solar radii (approx 2.7 billion km across or 1.7 billion miles) and is about 4,900 light years away from Earth. What would a small eruption look like there?
