The Google Data Arts Team has developed an incredible, interactive visual of the galaxy. Called 100,000 Stars, it shows the real location of over 100,000 stars in a spatially realistic setting. Viewers can zoom in and out and access information for over 87 major named stars, including our own solar system.
You can read more about how the project was created here. Check out the screenshots below for an idea of the interactive, and then head over to 100,000 Stars for the real thing. It is truly magnificent!
