Imagine a ball of fire sized so it can contain a million earths

Imagine a ball of fire sized so it can contain a million copies of "our" earth (approx., take or leave).

That's "our" sun.

Next, imagine another ball of fire sized so it can contain a billion copies of "our" sun (approx., again)

That's VY Canis Majoris.

The largest star.

That is, the largest star known to us, and to date.
