    It is really hard to picture big numbers. Sometimes its best to actually see it. Check out this brilliant page that lets you visualize some of the stars nearest to us. (remember that it is only a tiny fraction of the actual stars in the galaxy, which is only a one of hundreds of billions of galaxies).
