The Star UY Scuti
Exactly How Large is it?
Is this star big? Well, let;s just put it this way, you can fit 1,300,000 Earths into our sun. Yet you could fit 1,1 billion suns inside UY Scutti. It is seven astronomical units in diameter. An astronomical Unit is the - distance between earth and the sun or approx 93- million miles. Multiply that by seven, and we have the star's diameter which is 651,000,000 miles. or Six-hundred and fifty-one million miles This means that if UY Scutti were placed in the sun's location, its surface would reach the orbit of Neptune. . To illustrate just how unimaginable large of that is, a 747 jetliner cruising at 84 percent the speed of sound would take 1,200 years to circle UY Scutti. Light, which travels at 186,000 miles per second and can circle the Earth seven and a half times in one second, and circles the sun in fourteen seconds, would take seven hours to circle U Scutti. It is also a whopping 3,400,000 times brighter than our sun.

Radrook Admin: Yes, sooner or later this entire website will disappear with everything posted on it for lack of finding someone to take over when I croak. But it won't be because you folks are refusing to respond. That I can guarantee.

Radrook Admin: That's one reason why I stopped providing long insights into the chess games I play. It's like speaking to the wall.

Radrook Admin: Funny how I can have approx. 400 people at one point browsing, and not one of them wants to give feedback nor participate in any way manner or form. Not even a simple click with a like.

Radrook Admin: Funny how these discussion forums were all the rage once until Twitter and YouTube and other such discussion venues came along.

Radrook Admin: I wish visitors would say something instead of just reading and leaving in silence. Or at the least, at least have the courtesy to rate the material.

Radrook Admin: Thinking that doctors are beyond criticism no matter what is a cultural trait I do not share.

Radrook Admin: Reporting physician malpractice might save someone else from getting murdered.

Radrook Admin: Funny how nobody believes you when you describe physician malpractice until it happens to them-isn't it.
