    there is a famous pic of a gas cloud that is something silly like 300 million light years long. we (earth) is absolutely tiny on a galactic scale. uncomprehensible

    I have thought what if we are part of an atom?

    Those are some big stars. Too big for my liking.

    I saw this on an astromony forum last week and it is amazing to see, i'm actually surprised that a large percentage of the population think that there is no other lifeform out there. Earth is like a grain of sand in space and we are in just 1 solar system and there's lots more out there in deep space.

    There has to be bigger stars than that.

    Sirius is the brightest star in the sky.

    when talking about size of stars, there are more factors that need to be considered. the mass and density of the stars need to be taken into account.

    here are some boring facts.

    Most Luminous Object
    Quasar APM08279+5255, the most luminous object in the universe, was discovered in March, 1998, in the constellation of Sagittarius. It is estimated to be between 4 and 5 million billion times brighter than the Sun

    Coldest Place In The Universe
    The Boomerang Nebula is a cosmic refrigerator with a mind-numbing temperature of -272°C (-521.6°F). Pack your thermals - it's officially the coldest place in the universe! The freezing cold spot is made from a dust and gas cloud thrown off by a dying star, which astronomers call a "white dwarf". It's so cold because the center of the Nebula is forced to expand further and faster, as the dying planet sheds more and more cosmic junk. Deep space decay, however, also leads to cosmic regeneration. The dust and gas thrown out at the center of the nebula will eventually collect and merge to form new planets and solar systems like our own.


    Farthest Object Visible By The Naked Eye
    The remotest heavenly body visible with the naked eye is the Great Galaxy in the constellation of Andromeda. A silver smudge in the sky gives the Andromeda Galaxy away - at a mind-boggling 2,200,000 light years from Earth, anyone can spot it! One of the closest galaxies to our own, the light we see is the result of 200,000,000,000 stars shining together. The spiral galaxy is said to have been discovered by German astronomer, Simon Marius, around 1611.


    Smallest Stars
    Neutron stars are the smallest stars in the universe. A typical neutron star has a mass similar to the Sun, but a diameter of only 10 km. A sand-grain size of neutron star material would have the mass of a skyscraper.

    but not the brightest object

    Below are 2 pics i have taken with a Dsi II pro and a etx 125 telescope, far from perfect but i'm still learning and they were just quick snaps in b/w. Ive since upgraded to a 10" lx200gps scope but haven't been blessed with clear skys yet.

    Blooming heck, when you put stars on that scale then its unimaginable. I dont see how any space exploration can ever occur when there such huge massive objects, even if we had some super light speed engines around. Best bet would be wormholes....Stargate anyone?

    I also have to keep reminding myself that 1 light year is like 9,460,528,404,879 km!

    Nice pics paulb

    Its amazing what's out there.

    It does make me think that there must be other life forms on other planets.
