Did you see the Milky Way yet?
When you do, take a sec to ground yourself. You’re gazing out upon a huge galaxy…from within. Our solar system is 26,000 light years from the center of the galaxy which stretches 100,000 light years across. In terms of mileage, that’s 100,000 x 6,000,000,000,000 miles (6 trillion). Oh, and did we mention the 4 million solar mass black hole in the center?
