NASA shared some facts about the stars appearing in the photo
NASA also revealed some interesting facts about the stars seen in this picture. The American Space Agency said that the four-armed wheel is a pattern and we live in one of these. This place is located about two-thirds outside the center of Milky Way. In fact, our solar system is located 25,000 light years away from our Galaxy. This means that we live in subarbs from our Galaxy. This is so cool. Together, it takes 25 million years to reach the Milky Way Center by moving our Sun and Solar System.
… So this is the name of our Galaxy ‘Milky Way’
A large group of stars, gas and dust bound together through gravity is known as the Galaxy. NASA said that the bright stars we see today in the bright sky are all part of our galaxy. The Sun and all the planets around it are considered to be a part of the Galaxy which is known as Milky Way Galaxy. If you are wondering why our Galaxy is called ‘Milky Way’ Galaxy. So the reason behind this is that when you look in the sky from a very dark place, you see an oak milky band. Because of this, our Galaxy is called the Milky Way.
