And this is just in case you wanted a side-by-side comparison between our sun and the Earth, and our sun and VY Canis Majoris, the largest star. VY Canis Majoris is massive. If you’re traveling at the speed of light, it would take 14.5 seconds to travel around the circumference of our sun. Going at the same speed, around the circumference of VY Canis Majoris, it would take 8 and a half hours. And to fill up VY Canis Majoris, you would need 120,000,000,000,000,000 Earths.
