# How big is our sun?

The mean radius of the sun is 432,450 miles (696,000 kilometers), which makes its diameter about 864,938 miles (1.392 million km). You could line up 109 Earths across the face of the sun. The sun's circumference is about 2,713,406 miles (4,366,813 km).

Also asked, how big is the sun compared to the earth?

The Sun is 864,400 miles (1,391,000 kilometers) across. This is about 109 times the diameter of Earth. The Sun weighs about 333,000 times as much as Earth. It is so large that about 1,300,000 planet Earths can fit inside of it.

How many Earth can fit inside Sun?

The answer is that it would take 1.3 million Earths to fill up the Sun. That's a lot of Earths. The Sun makes up 99.86% of the mass of the Solar System. And it's the giant planets like Jupiter and Saturn which make the most of that remaining .14% of the Solar System.

What is bigger the Earth or the sun?

Nope, the Sun is much, much bigger than the Earth. From here on Earth, the Sun looks smaller than the Earth, but that's only because you're much closer to the Earth than the Sun. You're standing on the surface of the Earth, while the Sun is 150 million km away.
