The Milky Way

Milky Way Galaxy is a barred spiral galaxy that is a part of the billions of galaxies in the observable universe.

A galaxy is a collection of many million stars. We also live in one such star city. You must have noticed a white ribbon crossing the sky during the night time. This ribbon comprises of millions and billions of stars closely bound together to form a bond of light.

This ribbon is actually a small fragment of the Milky Way galaxy. The Milky Way is the galaxy to which our Solar System belongs. Our Sun is one of the 500,000 million stars in our own galaxy. The Sun lies at quite a distance from the center of the galaxy.
