    1. Yea Sig, in super slo mo, as everything else in the universe.

  2. Just, WOW!

    A thousand light years across. Unless there are some more dimensions around, nobody is going to visit that neighborhood.

    1. Bob, A 100 thousand light years across.

      A light year is 6 trillion miles.

      I love this stuff for the big picture. Like some Nat Geo dude with braces on his teeth still - isn't come on and tell us every detail about this galaxy and the 600 thousand trillion miles it encompasses. Or I'd think not;-)

      (I just watched a little Nat Geo over dinner. Seems they know every little detail of our past...)

      I visit this site every day. They got it goin on.

    2. Bob, My favorite galaxy so far is The Sombrero
