How Big Is The Sun? – MinutePhysics

Even though the sun and the moon look around the same size in the sky, the sun is 400 times bigger than our planet’s moon and is 400 times farther away. Compare the sun’s 150,000,000 km (93,205,679-ish miles) distance from us, and the moon being “just” 384,400 km (238,900 miles) away. This Minute Physics video explains that and much more: How Big Is the Sun?
