The largest group of newborn stars in our Local Group of galaxies, cluster R136, contains the most massive stars we’ve ever discovered: over 250 times the mass of our Sun for the largest. The brightest of the stars found here are more than 8,000,000 times as luminous as our Sun. And yet, there are still likely even more massive ones out there.

The (modern) Morgan–Keenan spectral classification system, with the temperature range of each star class shown above it, in kelvin. Our Sun is a G-class star, producing light with an effective temperature of around 5800 K and a brightness of 1 solar luminosity. Stars can be as low in mass as 8% the mass of our Sun, where they’ll burn with ~0.01% our Sun’s brightness and live for more than 1000 times as long, but they can also rise to hundreds of times our Sun’s mass, with millions of times our Sun’s luminosity.

Greater masses generally lead to higher temperatures, greater brightnesses, and shorter lifetimes.

The active star-forming region, NGC 2363, is located in a nearby galaxy just 10 million light-years away. The brightest star visible here is NGC 2363-V1, visible as the isolated, bright star in the dark void at left. Despite being 6,300,000 times as bright as our Sun, it’s only 20 times as massive, having likely brightened recently as the result of an outburst.

The ‘supernova impostor’ of the 19th century precipitated a gigantic eruption, spewing many Suns’ worth of material into the interstellar medium from Eta Carinae. High mass stars like this within metal-rich galaxies, like our own, eject large fractions of mass in a way that stars within smaller, lower-metallicity galaxies do not. Eta Carinae might be over 100 times the mass of our Sun and is found in the Carina Nebula, but it is not among the most massive stars in the Universe.

Luminosity isn’t enough, as short-lived outbursts can cause exceptional, temporary brightening in typically massive stars.

The star cluster NGC 3603 is located a little over 20,000 light-years away in our own Milky Way galaxy. The most massive star inside it is, NGC 3603-B, which is a Wolf-Rayet star located at the centre of the HD 97950 cluster which is contained within the large, overall star-forming region.

With a directly-measured mass of 152 solar masses, it is the most massive star we know of whose value is determined directly, rather than through evolutionary inferences.

The star forming region 30 Doradus, in the Tarantula Nebula in one of the Milky Way’s satellite galaxies, contains the largest, highest-mass stars known to humanity. The largest collection of bright, blue stars shown here is the ultra-dense star cluster R136, which contains nearly 100 stars that are approximately 100 solar masses or greater. Many of them have brightnesses that exceed a million solar luminosities.

The cluster RMC 136 (R136) in the Tarantula Nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud, is home to the most massive stars known. R136a1, the greatest of them all, is over 250 times the mass of the Sun. While professional telescopes are ideal for teasing out high-resolution details such as these stars in the Tarantula Nebula, wide-field views are better with the types of long-exposure times only available to amateurs.

Until enough time has passes for gravity to affect larger scales, only the small-scales can form structure early on. Without heavy elements to facilitate cooling, stars are expected to routinely exceed the mass thresholds of the most massive ones known today.
