Milky Way Galaxy
LiveGraphics3D, Mathematica 4.2, 5/28/04
Move your mouse over the picture to watch the galaxy spin. Click and drag on the picture to manually rotate it. Hold down the shift key and drag to zoom in.
This image was generated from a Milky Way data file taken from Rick Arendt’s Home Page. The position of the sun is represented by the small red arrow. There are 17,223 stars in this simulation, which is very far from complete. There are an estimated 100 billion stars in the actual Milky Way Galaxy. The image is about 60,000 light-years across.
