Hi.  You ask fun questions!

According to this Ask the Astronomer site:

the answer is in the neighborhood of 10^78 atoms, give or take a
couple of gazillion.

The Mad Scientist site:

puts it at 10^79...pretty close agreement, if you ask me.

Of course, they're all guessing, but it's impressive work, just the same.

Let me know if you need any more information here.
