I am a still confused about what modern cosmology calls stars? Is that star “Alpha Centuri” that is 4.3 light years away (according to modern cosmology) in this universe or another universe according to Vedic cosmology? What about planets outside our solar system – are they in this “vedic cosmology universe” ?

Relevant quote:

In SB 5.21.11 purport, Shrila Prabhupada says, “Each universe is covered by various layers of material elements, and therefore although the universes are clustered together, we cannot see from one universe to another. In other words, whatever we see is within this one universe.”
