Scale of Earth, Sun, Galaxy, and Universe

The scale of the Earth, Sun, galaxy, and universe is a staggering journey from the intimately familiar to the incomprehensibly vast. At the center lies our planet, a tiny speck in the vastness of space, orbiting an average-sized star, the Sun. Beyond, our galaxy, the Milky Way, contains billions of stars, with our solar system just one among many. Zooming out further reveals the incomprehensible vastness of the universe, containing billions of galaxies like our own, each with countless stars and planets. Understanding this scale invites us to contemplate our place in the cosmos and the wonders that lie beyond our earthly perspective.
