Black holes, giant stars, nebulae and star clusters, size comparisons are quite compelling to watch, but can get a bit monotonous if they go on for too long. However, they do succinctly illustrate just how puny we are in the grand scheme of things. In many ways it also illustrates how little we actually know compared to what there is to know. There are more objects out there than we can find names for so must of the stuff is assigned a numerical and letter designation that no one can remember.

Stars in our Universe can get unimaginably giant, but one thing that beats them is Black Holes. In this video, we compare these magnificent objects’ size with the Earth, Sun, and even the entire Solar System to give a perspective on how truly large Black Holes are.
