"There could be over a Septillion stars in the universe. Some people say that there are more stars than there are grains of sand on the face of the earth. But no one would try to count them individually for the universe is so vast. For instance, the Milky Way galaxy, where our solar system belongs, is said to have 100 billion stars. This is just one galaxy. Scientists estimate that there are likely to be over 100 billion to 1 trillion galaxies in the universe. If you multiply that, you would have 10 sextillion to 1 septillion stars!.”
