This thing is How many light years away??

So I want to know how they got it onto the scales to weigh it..


But seriously, even with out best telescopes this thing must be hard to accurately work out its mass..How do they do that and is it fool proof?

slightly off-topic, but this animated gif might help people grasp the scale of our sun to other stellar masses:

Great graphics and what you are basically saying is these things ar %^%$#$% HUGE!!!

It is really mind blowing stuff, and these are just the ones we can see...

Makes you wonder about the theories that we are just some alien schoolkid's ant farm...Or whatever..

Awesome graphics. It still hard to imagine that our Sun, which contains tremendous energy and power is only a speck of glitter compared to those leviathans.
