Really helpful to see what we are really looking at in relation to our position in the MW, thank you!

I've never seen anything presented like that before with the constellations mapped out on the arms of the MW -  totally fascinating and I've learnt something new today.  Thank you.

Thanks, I did something similar for the view towards the galactic centre if you're interested.
