Description

The Milky Way, in turn derived from the Greek ???????? (Galaxias) sometimes referred to simply as 'the Galaxy', is a barred spiral galaxy that lies with the Local Group of galaxies neighbourhood of the Universe, visible from Earth as a band of light in the night sky. Although the Milky Way is one of billions of galaxies in the observable universe, the Galaxy has special significance to humanity as it is the home galaxy of the planet Earth.
