Today I am going to be talking about the milky way. If you don’t know what the milky way is then I am going to tell you the milky way is our galaxy and it has our solar system its a bunch of stars that get together but if you were to look and try to see you would not be able to you would need a telescope but if you do see it it’s very pretty. In the early 1920s most of the astronauts thought the milky way had all the stars in the universe. A galaxy is a large group of stars, gas, and dust bound together by gravity. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The milky way is approximately 100 billion stars. Our galaxy is called the Milky Way because it appears as a milky band of light in the sky when you see it in a really dark area.
More than half the stars found in the Milky Way are older than the 4.5-billion-year-old sun. The milky way is called the milky way because it appears as a milky band of light in the sky when it’s dark outside. You could not take a picture the only way you can is if we were inside of the galaxy.
