By cosmic standards thats not surprising!
If by chance you were on a planet orbiting that star you would feel nothing of the movement.
Much like being on an airplane going 300 mph,
you really dont feel much.
We actually do the same here on earth (though not quite that fast).
Earth orbits the sun at X speed and the sun orbits the galatic center at X speed. The two
speeds square each other so we on earth move through space at about 500,000 mph.
The eggheads at MIT and JPL can explain it better than I can.
