Galaxies

Galaxies are huge collections of stars of tens of billions to hundreds of billions of stars. They have several forms, Spirals, Elliptical's, Dwarf s and interacting systems. The best known must be the nearby large spiral, the Andromeda Galaxy only 2.5 million light years away from us. We live in the Milky Way galaxy, now thought to be a barred spiral galaxy but we can’t see it’s full extent as we lie close to the plane of our galaxy and about 2/3 of the way from the centre.
