Well, it is obvious that the Earth is larger. The sun is a small hot ball up in the sky and you can see the entire ball if you look at it through dark glass. There is no possible way that you can see the end of the earth. Therefore, earth is many times larger than the sun!

It is easy to use scientific principles for this kind of question. You just need to observe the facts and measure. While you could measure the diameter of the sun and find it to be something around half an inch, there is no way for you to measure the diameter of the earth since there is no yardstick long enough!

The sun is many times larger then the earth. The earth and other planet revolve AROUND the sun. The sun is a star not a planet, it is the most important element in our solar system, without it we would all be dead. Everything on this earth wouldn't be possible without the star. On top of it making it daylight for us, it is the most worshiped and important object to us and any other organism in this planet.

While it might not look bigger from earth, the sun is actually a lot bigger. It's pretty far away which is why it doesn't look very big. It's hard to imagine something so big.

The sun is much bigger than the earth. Its mass is 333,000 time bigger and its radius is approx. 109 times of earth. I hope this helped!
