I occasionally see a video or poster showing the relative sizes of several stars. We’ve all heard of the red giant Betelgeuse from science class. There are quite a few known stars that dwarf it. Take a look at the page I just put up for reference. It’s on the menu under Astronomy / Stars – Size and Numbers – or click the image.
