Friday’s Factoid 3 (by Titus and Joel)

This week we learned about the sun and other giant stars like Betelgeuse which is twice the size of the Earth’s orbit around the sun. But the biggest star they’ve found is the Big Dog star. Canis Majoris is 7 quadrillion times bigger then earth. Last night Mom woke me up and we went out by the ocean where we could see millions of stars. Jupiter was shining very bright and we saw 4 of the giant stars around it. We saw Betelgeuse, Rigel, Sirius and Aldebaran. This video shows how big some of the stars are. by Titus

All of these stars make noises but we can’t hear them because sound doesn’t travel in space. But God can hear them. You can listen, too, on this video. by Joel

How cool that our hymn this week mentioned the song of the stars!
“Forever singing as they shine, ‘The hand that made us is divine!”
I’ve added a new page to the top of the site called “Hooray for Hymns.” I’ve requested folks to add their own favorite hymns to the list we started by leaving a comment. Let’s join in the celestial chorus of praise to our Lord!

  1. Wow, the sun is so tiny compared to all the other stars. And I thought the sun was huge! Actually i just learned in my science class that the sun is a dwarf star, that just blows my mind. I wonder how big other stars are in distant galaxies?

  2. God is so amazing. I thought the world was big but God created so many things and now I feel so small because of this video. I am sure God has made larger things too and I wonder when we will find it.

  3. This video reminds me of how amazing God’s creation is. Even though we look small compared to the “Big Dog” God still gave us as humans details and made us in his image. God is UN fathomable He makes everything according to how he wants it, and creation obeys his words.

    • Just remember, Jeriah, that as big as the whole universe is, God chose this one unique spot to play out the whole story of redemption and we are all apart of that story. Pretty amazing.
