The Milky Way Galaxy (Also called Resplendence or Via Lactea) is a barred spiral galaxy located in the Local Group galactic neighborhood and is the second largest member of it. It is often referred to as the: "Galaxy of Origins." It is the home of three hundred and fifty billion stars, hundreds of billions of worlds, and countless lifeforms. It serves as the capital galaxy of the CoB and UFSS. It has hundreds of species living in it such as Humans, Delvans, Dotsk, and others.
The Milky Way Galaxy has had a profound effect on the wider the Local Universe outside of its borders. However, most of this influence comes from it's satellites, with only a relative few species coming from the Galaxy itself. Even so, the galaxy itself is very important, largely due to it's size. It is one of the largest galaxies in the local universe trailing behind Andromeda and a handful of others.
Despite the small number of
Another famous aspect of the galaxy is the sheer abundance of satellite galaxies in orbit around it, with a total of fifty-six smaller galaxies in gravitational resonance with it, each with their own respective worlds and species.
The Milky Way, known by many other names by the various indigenous species, is an SBc class galaxy. The Milky part of its name is derived from its appearance as a dim glowing band arching across the night sky. The term "Milky Way" is a translation of the Latin via lactea, from the Greek γαλαξίας κύκλος (galaxías kýklos, "milky circle"). The name "Via Lactea" its still used by speakers of Romance languages to call the Milky Way, being an alternative name for this Galaxy even today. However the most common meaning of names given to it refer to it appearing as if liquid had been poured across the sky, hence why names like "Milky Way" have remained in many popular cultures.
The diameter of the Milky Way from end to end is roughly 126,000 light years. The Milky Way contains over 400 Billion stars, the majority of which have planetary systems. The Sol System is located within the Milky Way disk, about 27,000 light-years from the Galactic Center, on the inner edge of one of the spiral-shaped concentrations of gas and dust called the Orion Arm. At the center of the Milky Way there exists a supermassive black hole known as Sagittarius A.
The Milky Way Galaxy is made up of level regions. They are as followed:
- 1: Galactic Center
- 2: Galactic Bar
- 3: Long Bar
- 4: Near 3kpc Arm
- 5: Far 3kpc Arm.
- 6: Sagittarius Arm
- 7: Norma Arm
- 8: Sactum-Centarus Arm
- 9: Orion Spur
- 10: Perseus Arm
- 11: Outer Arm
- 12: Great Galactic Cloud
