Which is largest solar system universe or galaxy?
A solar system is a star with planets going around. Like our sun (which is a star) and all of its planets. A solar system is the smallest of your three. A galaxy is a group (millions) of stars, each of which may or may not have planets. The universe is everything, which includes hundreds of thousands of galaxies and other stuff too. Since it is everything it is the largest.

Thanks for the feedback!
The distance between planets are measured in millions of kilometers while the distance between solar systems are measured in light years while the galxies and the universe are… measured in AU (astronautical units)

A universe is a area in space that contains many galaxies and a galaxy is a group of stars of 100 billion or more. Finally a solar system is a sun/star that has an orbit (grav…itational pull) and has planets or other matter orbiting it.
Explain the difference between the solar system constellations star clusters galaxies and the universe?
The solar system is a system of planetary objects in revolution around a central star (like our sun). Our solar system is comprised of the following planets: Mercury (closest …to the sun), Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Pluto is just outside the orbit of Neptune, but is no longer considered one of the primary planets -- it is considered an ice dwarf. Most of the stars that you see in the sky have planets revolving around them -- just like the planets revolve around our sun in our solar system. When planets orbit a star, they make up a planetary system called a solar system. Constellations describe a group of stars in the celestial sphere (which is simply the sky as apparent to observers on Earth) that were grouped together -- mostly by the ancient Greeks or ancient Arabic cultures -- to make up a picture or image, often as depicted in a historically relevant mythlore. For example, when we look up at the sky and see the big dipper, we are actually looking at a constellation called Ursa Major (the big Bear) -- the "big dipper" is NOT a constellation, it is an asterism, because it does not represent the ancient Greek mythlore, but is instead a modern way of depicting that grouping of stars. Ursa Major, or the Big Bear, can be seen easily if you look at the handle of the dipper as the tail of the bear (I know, that's a long tail -- but that's part of the mythology) and the saucer section as the body of the bear. These star-pictures are a connect-the-dots way of remembering where celestial objects are in the sky. There are a total of 88 constellations. Constellations are completely relative to our celestial sphere -- so if you were to stand on the surface of another planet, you would not be able to see the same constellations. Star Clusters are another kind of celestial object visible in the night sky, but unlike constellations, they are made up of hundreds or thousands of stars which appear to be in such close proximity that they form a dense cluster. The Pleiades is one example. There are two kinds of star clusters: Globular -- which are gravitationally bound, very dense star clusters of many, many old stars -- and Open clusters, which usually contain fewer stars, and often they are younger. Galaxies are massive congregations of stars, all gravitationally bound. They also contain planetary objects, dust, and gaseous stellar remains. The Milkyway is our galaxy, and it is classified as a barred spiral. Andromeda is the nearest galaxy to us. Stars within a Galaxy all orbit a center mass, just as the planets in a solar system orbit a center star. There can be from ten million stars to a hundred trillion stars in any given galaxy, and the universe is simply littered with galaxies. Think of a galaxy as a microcosm for the universe -- for ever star in a galaxy, that can easily by thought of as a galaxy in the universe. Trillions of galaxies make up our universe. Trillions of stars makes up our largest galaxies. Most of these stars have planets revolving around them in solar systems. This is the makings of our universe. The universe is slightly more complicated to strictly define, but in simple terms it can be described as the space in which all existence is contained (debatable? Yes. But this is the simplest way to think of the universe). In the "beginning" the universe was an incredibly dense, infinitely small point of matter and energy, which exploded outwards to create our ever-expanding universe -- all of space and time. Whether or not it will collapse on itself, what it is expanding into, and what actually caused the big bang to occur -- well, these are all more theoretical questions which may be beyond the scope of our inquiry. If this is for homework, you'll probably be asked to list these objects from largest to smallest, or smallest to largest. From smallest to largest: Planets, Stars, Solar Systems, Constellations, Star Clusters, Galaxies, Universe.

the sun is the smallest by far.... the milky way IS our solar system.....many solar systems make up a galaxy and there are many many galaxies in a universe... now they claim t…o have found even more UNIVERSES..... wow.... we are but grains of sand.... how cool is that eh???
What is the order from smallest to largest of the universe galaxy galaxy cluster sun and solar system?

The Universe contains the galaxy's which contain the solar systems which contain the planets and stars.

universe is the largest, containing galaxies, which contain solar systems, one of which contains earth
As we only know of our own in any definite terms we cannot say which is the largest. Nor are we ever likely to be able to do so.
The natural satellite called Luna or Moon orbits the Earth, a planet in the Solar (Sol is the name of our star) system. The 8 planets with their moons, and planetesimals and a…steroids and comets in the Solar system orbit the Sun. The Sun is just a regular old star out near the edge of our spiral galaxy, the Milky Way. There are billions of other stars and many black holes in the galaxy, too. The Milky Way is part of a local cluster with several much smaller galaxies that seem to be attaching themselves to the Milky Way. The Milky Way is just an average spiral galaxy, one of billions upon billions of different shaped galaxies that all seem to be moving away from each other within our Universe. The Universe is most likely part of a larger multiverse, or multiple universes.
In order from largest to smallest.... Universe - Galaxy - Solar System.
Milky Way: About 100,000 light-years in diameter Universe: Unknown, but the observable Universe has a diameter of about 92 billion light-years. Solar System: There are diff…erent definitions for the limits of the Solar System; if you include the Oort Cloud, you would have a diameter of about 4 light-years. That's a radius of about 2 light years, taking you about half way to the nearest star. With many other commonly used definitions, the "Solar System" is much smaller.
