The Galaxy and Mass Assembly catalogue is a detailed map of the Universe showing where galaxies are in 3D. This simulated flythrough shows the real positions and images of the galaxies that have been mapped so far. Distances are to scale, but the galaxy images have been enlarged for your viewing pleasure.
Remember each little speck is an entire galaxy, not just a single star. Our Solar System’s star, the Sun, is merely one of the 100–400 billion stars in our galaxy The Milky Way.
