Launch to the Milky Way!

If you want to venture past our solar system, SkyServer can take you there. Our sun and all the planets, dwarf planets, satellites, asteroids and comets that are part of our solar system reside within our home galaxy, the Milky Way. All the individual stars that you observe in the night sky are outside our solar system but within the Milky Way. There are other collections of stars to explore as well. Globular and open clusters both have interesting stories to tell and have been captured in great detail by the SDSS telescope.

As we reach out beyond our solar system, we can explore:
