VY CMa
Biggest star in the universe


VY Canis Majoris (VY CMa) is the largest known star and also one of the most luminous. It is a red hyper giant in the constellation Canis Major.

It is 1800-2200 times the sun in radius, about 3.0 billion km (1.864 billion mi) in diameter. Placed in our Solar System, its surface would extend out past the orbit of Saturn.

Some astronomers disagree, and think that VY Canis Majoris might be smaller; merely 600 times the size of the Sun, extending past the orbit of Mars
