Nonillion Dollars?

I've realized that I can only count up to nine hundred ninety nine billion.
Today I was discussing this with my mathematics teacher and she mentioned something about Nonillions. I've done a little research and I can't understand clearly how much a Nonillion is. Is it a huge number?
For example, if I say nonillion dollars, how much money is that?

Massively big. A nonillion is a huge number.

1 with 30 zeros is technically accurate, but some numbers are so large, you can't really relate it to anything you can touch or recognize.

But to get a feel, if you took a nonillion $1 bills, you could paper the entire surface of the planet 12 million miles thick.

Another way, if you laid 9 million galaxies (the size of the Milky Way) side by side, it would stretch one nonillion inches.
