Somebody check my math...
But if the largest star in VV Cephei (Mu Cep) is assumed to be roughly 1500 times the diameter of our sun, if we scale Mu Cep down to the size of our
sun, and also scale the Earth down accordingly, then the Earth's diameter would be smaller than the length of a football field...
...or if Mu Cep was scaled down to be the size of the Earth, and the Earth was also scaled down accordingly, then the Earth would be the size of a
large beach ball.
