- 6. Our Town - The Milky Way Galaxy
- Itís the Milky Way, and here is a picture of it. Our star - Sol, and the Solar System is right here: in the Orion Arm.
- On each side of the Orion Arm is the Perseus Arm and the Sagittarius Arm. You can see that further along the Sagittarius Arm joins with the Carina Arm to become the Sagittarius-Carina Arm. The distance across the Milky Way is about 100,000 light years.
