This Antique Celestial print dates from the 19th Century and beautifully renders an expanse of the milky way and constellations with a warm cream on black. So beautiful! Looks great in both small or large sizes.  My antiquarian Astronomy prints are restored to give them a unique design as Wall Art with a beautiful velvety texture and printed on 255gsm Archival Fine Art Paper. For lovers of Antique Astronomy art, 19th Century art and illustrations, and beautiful vintage prints.  Milky Way…

Milky Way with Constellations Antique Celestial Print, Vintage Constellations…

Our sun is located about two-thirds of the way out from the center of the Milky Way. Illustration via Caltech.

Milky Way. Every star we see in the sky is part of the Milky Way, but a brighter center exists some light-years away. The Milky Way is about light-years in diameter and contains 200 to 400 billion stars.

Astronomers define our place in the cosmos | Cosmos. As the Milky Way hurtles through space, it doesn't travel alone. It is part of a galactic supercluster which a team of astronomers has just succeeded in mapping. Their map, which graces the cover of September’s Nature, is named Laniakea, Hawaiian for “immeasurable heaven”. They say it contains about 100,000 galaxies clustered into a roughly heart-shaped structure, all engaged in a common galactic waltz.

Astronomers define our place in the cosmos, A visualisation of a slice of the Laniakea supercluster shows individual galaxies as white dots and their movement by white threads. The region contains 100 million billion stars.

The Milky Way, our home galaxy in space, is a vast galaxy containing 400 billion suns, at least that many planets, and a 4-billion-solar-mass black hole at the center. See how our Milky Way Galaxy works in this Space.com infographic.

This map shows the full extent of the Milky Way galaxy - a spiral galaxy of at least two hundred billion stars. Our Sun is buried deep within the Orion Arm about 26 000 light years from the centre. Towards the centre of the Galaxy the stars are packed together much closer than they are where we live. Notice also the presence of the presence of a nearby dwarf galaxy, the Sagittarius dwarf - which is slowly being swallowed up by our own galaxy

(we're the red dot) Laniakea is Hawaiian for "immeasurable heaven", mapped only in 2014 using velocities, this is our home of the Milky Way spiral galaxy & other galaxies as our neighbours in a galactic supercluster
