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.

...

Now, where the heck did I put that lighter?!
