Well, we are looking at our home galaxy, The Milky Way. It is a spiral galaxy which means that it has arms coming off the bright bulge in the center. It is filled with gas and dust which results in the stars we look up to at night.
What are we looking at Bob?
There is so many other spiral galaxies in the universe, they actually make up 77% of the universes galaxies that scientists have observed
This is the biggest and brightest star in all of the Milky Way that we know of. Its called the Pistol Star. It is 100 times more massive than our sun and 10,000,000 times as bright! That's crazy!!
