You have a pilot flame as big as a baseball card?!
If it's coming from the pilot then there's some thing wrong with the gas valve and it may need to be replaced. That would be the biggest pilot flame I've ever seen. The pilot burner is the mushroom shaped cap. You need to shut this down and call a pro to check this out. It's not safe to operate it in the condition you describe.
