The closest star, Alpha Centauri is actually a star system of 3 stars
The largest known star, VY Canis Majoris, is ~1 billion times the size of the sun
The closest "solar system" to our own Solar System is named the Epsilon Eridani System.
The Milky way, our galaxy, is 100,000 Lightyears in diameter.
