No. There is a size about ten to a hundred times
smaller than the sun that planets cannot be bigger
than and still be planets. A planet larger than
that becomes a star. The sun itself would be a
planet if it weren't too big, but because it is
too big, it is a star.
There are many, many, many stars that are
bigger than the sun. In fact, most of the stars
that you can see at night are bigger than the
sun. There are many more stars yet that are
smaller than the sun, but they are too faint for
your human eyes to see without a telescope. We can
only see the sun because it is so close to Earth.
