The Milky Way moves through space at a velocity of about kilometres per second ( miles per second) with respect to the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation. The Milky Way’s central core contains a supermassive black hole. It is commonly referred to as Sagittarius A*. It contains the mass of about million Suns. The stars, gas and.
The Milky Way is a Spiral Galaxy and is the galaxy where our Solar System is located. No one knows exactly what the Milky Way Galaxy looks like from the outside. It is a spiral-shaped galaxy, with arms that resemble the shape of a spinning firework. The most visible part of our own Milky Way Galaxy is part of the sky that looks like a misty cloud.

I run this page because I love that feeling of learning something new, of seeing something that I didn’t know existed, of educating myself on other cultures, of delving into everything this world has to offer - and I want to share that feeling with other people. We begin our discussion of the Galilean moons with the outermost one, Callisto, not because it is remarkable but because it is not. This makes it a convenient object with which other, more active, worlds can be compared. Its distance from Jupiter is about 2 million kilometers, and it orbits the planet in 17 days. Like our own Moon, Callisto.
