Default Reality, Absolute Truth

Since there is no way of obtaining absolute truth, how are you sure what is reality?
There exists the possibility that our senses might fool us
(there's no solid argument for or against it, kinda like "does God exist?")
can science be relied upon as absolute?
is the Sun actually big?
is a year actually 365.2425 days long?
senses conflict with scientific data, so i propose that reality be separated into different spheres of reality (they can probably be separated further, i haven't looked into it much):

Scientific Reality
the Sun is 864,938 miles in diameter
Sensory Reality
the Sun is a small ball of light in the sky

can we rely on scientific data that the sun is big? or is there essentially no way for humans to know absolutely that the sun is big?

Personally, I do not hold all scientific knowledge as absolute truth
what are your opinions on science and reality?
is absolute truth relative?
is there any possible way we can obtain absolute truth?
can one person have their version of reality and another person have their own version of reality?
etc. etc.
