I suppose the thick line in the middle is our galaxy, edge on, of course. I suppose it does show the universe, but our sky is dominated by our own galaxy.

The images we're seeing is sometimes referred to as our "Local Universe" meaning what we can see of our Universe from our location. Our Cosmic neighborhood.

I am a little ignorant on astrology outside of our neighborhood so if this is a dumb question just keep in mind I am blond, ok. Does anyone know what those streaks are that look like roads or railroad tracks? They are all over, outside of our galaxy? Also there are some disc like objects that look like a simon says light up game but without the colors; what are those?

I'm I supposed to be getting more from the original link? All I'm getting is a picture of some galaxy, and I can move a little to the right and left. I can also soon in a tiny bit.

I'm not computer savy, fill me in.

Oh man this is so great thank you for sharing! I bookmarked this right away, I foresee many a night where I shall whittle away the day just staring at a digital representation of our wondrous galaxy.

Cool Post. It's slides nice like an eternal eight. Notice the big hoe between both ends of the Milky Way, looks like nobody's got our back!

I always wondered why companies other than Google haven't done something similar, well I hope there are more people willing to put work into those starmaps, eventually we will have 3d versions in the not so far future.

they already did it a little bit.

you have google sky in google earth.

you also have some special options in the database where you can select X-ray and other wavelength spectrum within google earth.

about chromoscope,

i like the way they have put this together. only it's too slow at this moment.

it would be cool if they made some solution to compare parts of the galaxy easier and more convenient. right now you have to switch with the bar all the time. and the images doesn't seem to be cached or something.

anyway, good site! but already seen it
