Here is another perspective on the enormity of the SUN. This picture captures all bodies of the solar system. You’ll need to really zoom to see the earth.

Still on the SUN, it’s surface regularly dramatically explodes to produce coronal mass ejection, whose effects can be felt on earth.

This one is bigger than a dozen earths.

While the moon is our closest extraterrestrial neighbor, it’s still unbelievably distant from us.
Here is a picture of the International Space Station from a NASA Space probe. You can see the tiny moon floating in the blackness of space.
