Our earth, the other planets, he sun, and several thousand ther bodies make up our solar system. But the solar system is only part of a still larger sys- em which is called the galaxy, or Milky Way. It is called the Milky Way because of the way it looks to us -- a wide, softly shining band of light that can be seen stretching across the sky on clear, moonless nights. It ex:ends entirely around the sky, ike a great irregular circle, but only part of it can be seen at one time. What is a galaxy? It is a great group of billions of stars and clouds of dust and gas. Because there are millions of other galazies out beyond its Doundaries, we call the Milky Way "our" galaxy. This galaxy is shaped some- ;hing like a giant watch, with the earth some distance from the center. It is so large that a man traveling at the speed oJ light, which is 6 million million [6 followed by 12 zeros) mile, in a year, would take 100,000 years to go from one edge to the other! Like all galaxies, the Milky Way contains billions of stars and clouds of dust and gas. The central part is shaped something like a sphere and is surrounded by a great flat disk of stars. All the stars in the gmaxy are suns, some smaller than and some hundreds of times larger than our sun. Most of these stars are so distant that they cannot be seen as separate stars. Astronomers now believe that the galaxy itself rotates . and that it takes 200 million years for it to make one revolution. Although the galaxy is such huge system, it is only part of a greater system. Beyond the Milky Way are millions of other galaxies. Many of these are similar to our galaxy in structure and size. The distance from the Milky Way to the nearest of these other systems, the Great Nebula in Andromeda, is 1 million light years. The Riddle Box 1. Why is a football stadium cold? 2.
