Big Things, and Really Big Things

There are all sorts of demonstrations of the relative sizes of things in the universe, including the famous Powers of Ten video (here's an interactive Java variation on that). This animated GIF takes a sequential pairing approach and focuses on planets and stars, and it's really cool. Hard to believe that there are some stars even bigger than Miley Cyrus! Thanks to Cumbrian Sky for the tip.
