The Largest Known Star:
VY Canis Majoris (VY CMa) is a red hypergiant in the constellation Canis Major. It is one of the largest known stars by radius and also one of the most luminous of its type. It is approximately 1,420 ± 120 solar radii, about 1,975,000,000 kilometres in diameter, and about 1.2 kiloparsecs (3,900 light-years) distant from Earth.
This is what our earth would have looked like 300-million years ago if it had modern political borders. Pangea was a supercontinent that existed during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras, forming about 300 million years ago.
