1. The Milky Way
Our solar system is part of a spiral galaxy – a large group of stars, gas, and dust bound together by gravity – called the Milky Way. We call it the Milky Way because it appears as a milky band of light in the sky. The Milky Way’s galactic center is shown wrapped around the MOVA Globe and is depicted by hundreds of dots to capture the immense number of stars packed in its real-life counterpart.
