LET’S TALK ABOUT SIZE
How big is our Sun compared to other stars?
In a dramatic and popular video featured on YouTube, the relative sizes of planets and stars are shown from smallest to largest. The video starts with Earth’s Moon and progresses through increasingly larger planets in our Solar System.
Next, the Sun is shown along as compared to many of the brighter stars in our neighborhood of the Milky Way Galaxy. Finally, some of the largest stars known spin into view.
Note that the true sizes of most stars outside of the Sun and Betelgeuse are not known by direct observation, but rather inferred by measurements of their perceived brightness, temperature, and distance.
A Speck In The Universe
Our Earth – a mere grain
in an ocean of sand
a great, majesty wonder
It’s power is great
All fight for dominance
And in the small galaxy,
a small area contains a tiny sun
the sun having 8 even smaller planets
On one, are the minuscule, insignificant life forms.
In the whole of the universe,
were are not but the tiniest piece
Each of us,
a speck in the Universe.

~~Star Size Comparison~~
~~Uploaded on Feb 8, 2009~~
There are several videos circulating showing a comparison of the largest stars. I like these kind of things, and I wanted to try one myself.
Probably because I also watched “Cosmos” by Carl Sagan as a kid. Actually my first Youtube upload. Hope you like it …
