    Welcome to Physics Forums, haribol!

    Aside from the rare exception like labguy pointed out, even the best telescopes on Earth can only show other stars as points of light. They're just too far away to see them like a disk instead of a point.

    But astronomers have found other stars that are like our sun. Often times, what they're trying to do nowadays is find out if there are planets around those stars.
