How many of you are interested in space? I have always been facinated by it and several times in my life (in the spring/summer) I would sit out in the back porch and just look up at the sky & moon and just imagine how huge our universe is... and then... to think that that 'huge universe' is a small dot in our galaxy.
Planet earth is somewhere on the most outer ring on the galaxy. I watched a program called 'The Universe' and I was just in awe of how amazing the galaxy is. They compared it to our living conditions.... the center of the galaxy, that bright bright center of stars would be were everything is at and happening... (like a city of New York)... then the outer rings... as we go further out... would be the boonies (lol) where we are at..... so we can't really see all the action (other star formations, etc) BUT the positive thing about being that far out is that it lets us see our neighbor galaxies..... I think that is awesome.
Now as science becomes more and more advanced.... some are saying that we were most likely ADOPTED to the milky way galaxy. The picture below shows the yellow circle (our Sun) found directly between Milky Way [blue whirlpool] & Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxies [orange loop].
Pretty amazing ha? I sort of feel like an adult who's parents have told me that I was adopted all these years... lol
All this time, we though we were always with the Milky Way but now they are seeing that we actually were part of another galaxy.... :unsure:
