This is a follow-up to my previous post Even Our Sun is Tiny but this time a video (via digg) shows you how small we really are and which monstrously large objects are “floating” around in our galaxy.
A size comparison1 of the Sun to VV Cephei A (the supergiant of the binary star system VV Cephei) can be found at Wikipedia. VV Cephei A is 1600-1900 times the size of the Sun and 275,000-575,000 times as luminous.
If you imagine the Sun as a one millimeter dot, VV Cephei A is nearly two meters in diameter.
Earth imagined as a one millimeter dot makes VV Cephei A 207 meters in diameter!
Even more interesting facts.
