Galactic Map

The Galactic Map gives you a three-dimensional view of stars and other bodies. You can zoom in or out, or rotate the display, by clicking the Zoom or Rotate buttons beneath the map.

At scales greater than about 15,000 light years, the map will show a dashed ellipse, which represents the approximate extent of the Milky Way Galaxy, and the centre of the Galaxy will also be marked.

Please note that this display is still experimental, and we are working on improving it and adding new features. If you have any suggestions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us.
