    Well VY Canis Majoris the Largest Star that has been found

    Its Diameter is larger than Jupiter's orbit

     Or Moon reflects about 9 percent of the Sunlight that hits it

     so just compare

    You might have worded the question better, e.g. 'are there stars brighter than the moon?' Then the answer I would give is our own star, the sun, is far brighter in appearance than any other star visible, because it is the closest star to US.

    No the brightest type of star is black holes you should visit one. You'll be known as the first person to land on a black hole

    Measured luminosity here on earth, no, the moon reflects more light from our local star we call the sun.

    There are stars 'out there' that have more luminosity than our sun, often larger or hotter, and our sun is no mini ha ha:

    As far as I know, every star is brighter than that.

    The moon is not a star. It is a moon. The moon is totally dark except where it reflects the Sun's light.

    If you are close enough, pretty much any star other than a black dwarf will be brighter.

    Much brighter. Although the moon is not a star, it looks bright because it is so close to us. It's only light from the sun shine on the moon.
