Look-alike Milky Way galaxies
« on: December 05, 2009, 02:21:47 pm »
For what we know about the Milky Way structure, we live in a small-barred spiral galaxy, with multiples arms... like this one :
NGC 5970


If you find others Milky Way twins... please post them here  :D

I think this could be a good subject for OOTD if it hasn't been done already.
Good news everyone!

Alice, if the gap is still open, I'd like to take it for whenever the new set of OOTD's comes up.  I think this is going to be a fun OOTD.
