VY Canis Majoris is the largest known star in the Milky Way Galaxy. It is a hypergiant 4,892 lightyears from Gaea and has a radius of 1,975,000,000 kilometres.

Physical characteristicsEdit

VY Canis Majoris is so large that if placed in the Sol system, it would extend as far out as Saturn. It is an aged, dying star that is expected to explode into a magnificent hypernova sending gamma bursts nearby. While Gaea will not be affected, Ucharpli and Delse will be destroyed by such an event.

The star is surrounded in an enormous circumstellar nebula simply known as Canis Major. This was formed from the star's wild flares ejecting dust and debris out. Because this nebula is surrounded by warm, radiation filled gas, it is almost impossible to navigate. While minor planetoid bodies can be found within this nebula, very little of it has been explored.

While no significant planets have been discovered, more than 100 dwarf planets have been discovered orbitting at close ranges. This implies that some of the dust in the Canis Major nebula has become to collesce. As the star only has 100,000 years left to live, the likelihood of even Mercury sized planets to form is next to none.

DimonroffEdit

Main article: Dimonroff

Around 5 AU from the star is a facility known as Dimonroff, a secret location used for research beyond galactic law. The remoteness of this star as well as its danger makes it almost impossible to find.

Identified planetoidsEdit

Below are the largest, most notable planetoids.

  • SPK-423
