Are the stars we see bigger than the sun?
1. Every star you see in the night sky is bigger and brighter than our sun. Of the 5 000 or so stars brighter than magnitude 6 only a handful of very faint stars are approximately the same size and brightness of our sun and the rest are all bigger and brighter.
Is the sun larger than 90% of stars?
The Sun has about 1000 times the mass of Jupiter. Therefore no planet could ever be remotely close to the same mass as the sun. The sun is what we call a yellow dwarf star. Even though it is considered a “dwarf” it is bigger than 90% of the stars in the Milky Way.

What is the biggest thing in the universe?
Hercules-Corona Borealis Great Wall

What is the closest star to Earth?
The closest star to Earth is a triple-star system called Alpha Centauri. The two main stars are Alpha Centauri A and Alpha Centauri B which form a binary pair. They are about 4.35 light-years from Earth according to NASA.
Are other stars called Suns?
A subtler aspect of this question might be whether other stars are “suns” in that they have planets of their own. In that case the answer is “No not quite.” Planets are very common around other stars orbiting as many as 30 percent of stars similar to the Sun.

Q: If all stars are suns then why don’t we call them suns. Stars can be suns if they have inhabitable planets that have cognitive life and they decide to call its life giving radiation their sun. Our very own sun is a star very similar to millions of the stars that we see in our telescopes.
