Actually, VY Canis Majoris is not the largest star known. There is no precise answer, as we cannot observe the whole universe, but UY Scuti is the leading candidate for being the largest star known, though KY Cygni has a chance to be larger.

Wow all in PS? Looks awesome.

Can you explain some of the techniques behind the light effects and how did you make the asteroids?
