Not bad, but I think we've determined the largest M0's to be approaching 16AU diameter. The current goal is to beat 15.992

15.993 AU
some where far away from the milky way lies this beast!



I have found a 15.992 AU also.

Nope, I already posted a 15.993 AU star on Wednesday the 14th (post #162) --and i see now that LucasVB has found a star of the same size a few hours after your post as well.

Missed that post, sorry. But I think this emphasizes that the largest stars approach 16AU and it's going to be exponentially more challenging to find anything larger than what has already been posted (assuming the limit actually is 16 and not 15.993).

Agree to that. Those 15.993 AU stars already seem to be much rarer than 15.992 stars (had to search several hours before finding one), so I suppose the probability of finding even larger ones drops sharply with each additional .001 increment (unless a substantially more effective search method reveals more, of course).

I don't know if a maximum size would actually be defined somewhere, or that it is just an implied property of the mathematical models running behind space engine. It would be interesting to know something about those ...

Here it is, there is one bigger star that I saw here, but I hope this will make second place smile

I have found a couple of contenders that trump the current largest stars by a few AU's !! biggrin (edit: those shown on the first page anyway)

My best contender to date is almost 16 AU Dia:

15.887 AU, M0 0 (Red Hypergiant) - RS 0-4-2267-271-14370-0-0-447 (Version 0.9.7.3 beta)

edit: (After posting this and reading the last few posts in this thread I realise that the "All Time Challenge" is not being updated as stated on the first page, so I am in the running, but not the biggest submission sad Despite the fact that M0 0 stars seem to be topping out at ~16 AU's I'll keep on hunting for something bigger smile )

Oh, boy! 15 AU hypergiant.


On a side note, I also found a binary black hole/hypergiant system:

There's the shot from the black hole.

I believe I have found a star that is far larger than any on this list. Its name is RS 0-3-283-941-228-0-0-637. It is a red hypergiant and sits at a monstrous 15.991 AU I am using version beta 0.9.7.2 and found it by randomly clicking lol. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe this star takes the cake.

[EDIT] After having read the past couple of posts and realized that the front page isn't accurate, I know that this star actually is sightly smaller than the others mentioned here. The only cool thing about it is that I found it in a few clicks upon opening up Space Engine (I started inside a globular cluster's black hole center then went at max speed for about 15 seconds, found a cool looking galaxy clicked twice and there she was. (Note: when I originally clicked on the star, it said 1235.124 AU but then I realized it said system diameter...)
