VY Canis Majoris is one of the largest stars ever discovered. Having a diameter of 1,230,000,000 miles, over 1,400 times larger than our own sun, it takes light nearly two hours just to reach the other end of the star. It is so large, if we replaced our sun with VY Canis Majoris, it would engulf every planet besides Uranus and Neptune.

Even larger than this star is NML Cygni. With a diameter of about 1,430,000,000 miles, NML Cygni is 1,650 times larger than the sun. It is the largest star ever discovered, it being around fifteen percent larger than VY Canis Majoris.
