The star system to which our solar system belongs.
Our home galaxy, the Milky Way is thought to be an average spiral galaxy.
The spiral galaxy in which the Sun resides. The disk of our Galaxy is visible in the night sky as the faint band of light known as the Milky Way.
The galaxy that contains our Sun. The term Milky Way also refers to the luminous tract, or belt, stretching across the heavens in a dark sky, which is the central disk of the galaxy.
The galaxy in which we reside. So called because the glow of faint stars in that part of the galaxy which is nearest to us creates the Milky Way.
The name of our own galaxy in which the Sun resides.
the galaxy containing the solar system; consists of millions of stars that can be seen as a diffuse band of light stretching across the night sky
The galaxy that the Sun and Solar System (and Earth) are in.
The galaxy in which our solar system resides.
a pancake-shaped spiral galaxy containing 400 billion to a trillion stars. The Milky Way galaxy is approximately 70,000 light years in diameter. The spiral galaxy Andromeda is the major neighboring galaxy, two million light years away. Both Andromeda and the Milky Way belong to a gathering of 20 galaxies called the Local Group which stretch over millions of light years. Two irregularly-shaped minor galaxies, the Magellanic Clouds, containing billions of stars are closer to us than Andromeda.
The specific galaxy to which the Sun belongs, so named because most of its visible stars appear overhead on a clear, dark night as a milky band of light extending across the sky. [More Info: Field Guide
the spiral galaxy to which Earth belongs
The galaxy that our Solar System resides in. Most of the stars that can be seen through amateur telescopes are in the Milky Way Galaxy. The Milky Way looks like a faint band of light across the night sky.
the large spiral galaxy in which our Sun and planets reside. Our Sun is one star of several hundred billion in the Milky Way.
Aggregation of about 400 billion stars in a flattened, disk-shaped structure in space. Our solar system is found in this structure.
The spiral galaxy containing our sun. Visible on the northern hemisphere in summer in the night sky as the Milky Way, a faint band stretching over the sky.
