Absolutely stunningly beautiful. Something that gives us life - yet could easily cause the death of us all. So massively huge, yet even though you
could line up 109 Earths across our sun's face - it is merely a small to medium sized star and is absolutely dwarfed when compared to stars such as
Eta Carinae (5 million times larger than our sun), Betelgeuse (300 times larger than Eta Carinae) - and of course VY Canis Majoris, which is
1,000,000,000 (1 billion) times larger than our sun...something so comparatively huge to us - yet fairly small compared to other stars.
Thanks OP - S-n-F!
