A question about the Milky way
The two dimensional depictions/drawings of the Milky Way make it look pretty much like a flat disk of stars and planets.

Is the Milky Way (and the other Galaxies) a flat disk or do the stars and planets of the Milky way actually look like a huge ball of speckled light?

Re: A question about the Milky way
The disk is ~100,000 light years in diameter.

The answer to your question, is that the galactic disk, is 10,000-12,000 light years thick.

1 light year, is 6 trillion miles...

The universe is a big place, we are a small part of it with all our delusions and hate.

galaxies just like planets and atoms all have a rotation axis!

that axis determinate the overall structure, but you can have a bunch of factors that plays with this.


the wider a galaxy is, the younger it is! The more dense it is, the older it is.

for exemple andromeda is very old! But this decipacation of andromeda is relative to our current Time line.

when you will die you will realise that time does not really exist. its more of a induced reality becase of the decay of matter when exposed to oxygen.

To live is to believe in the power of dreams! To dream is to believe in the power of love! To love is to Know the truth!
The Desire to Be fuel the belief that you Are which ignite the Will to Become which bring back forth the desire to be...
Let it be-come you! It means Stop seeking your higher self! It is seeking you! Stand still in your mind to calm the waters of your mind and then it shall find you, so you can ride those waves together!
your true self lies somewhere between your heart and your consciousness. It is called the heart consciousness,which is the creator, which is you!
The heart create the emotions and our mind evoke its purpose, from which we dream the life we live in order to imagine the nature of reality and finally remember love!

The highest Purpose of our mind is the ability to Forget! Go on and Forgive yourself!
There is no love in truth but there is truth in love!
Be authentic, nobody else can do it for you!

Yes, the Andromeda is 2 1/2 times as wide as the Milky Way!

Thanks.

So it is 8 to 10 times longer than it is wide. Sort of like a round tablet only slightly bigger. ;-)

Here's a side-view diagram of the Milky way: [link to upload.wikimedia.org]
It is spherical but the vast majority of matter and stars are in the bulge and disk.
