The Milky Way. Abstract illustration of the Milky Way, showing the planets of the Solar System over a spiral galaxy. Clockwise from lower right are the Earth, Mars (red), Jupiter, Saturn (with rings), Uranus and Neptune. The Milky Way is a disc-shaped spiral galaxy containing at least 100 billion stars, one of which is our Sun. Seen from Earth it appears as a faint band of star clouds and illuminated gas nebulae crossing the night sky. The Solar System is located in one of the Milky Way's two spiral arms.
