APOD: Star Size Comparisons (2013 Jun 06) Video Credit & Copyright: morn1415 (YouTube) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130606.html http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKTu6B4Rgek Explanation: How big is our Sun compared to other stars? In a dramatic and popular video featured on YouTube, the relative sizes of planets and stars are shown from smallest to largest. The above video starts with Earth's Moon and progresses through increasingly larger planets in our Solar System. Next, the Sun is shown along as compared to many of the brighter stars in our neighborhood of the Milky Way Galaxy. Finally, some of the largest stars known spin into view. Note that the true sizes of most stars outside of the Sun and Betelgeuse are not known by direct observation, but rather inferred by measurements of their perceived brightness, temperature, and distance. Although an inspiring learning tool that is mostly accurate, APOD readers are encouraged to complete the learning experience -- and possibly help make future versions more accurate -- by pointing out slight inaccuracies in the video. http://www.youtube.com/user/morn1415 Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130606 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0606
