It's a dwarf galaxy; the diameter is about 6500 light-years (according to information in the Wikipedia article).
The LMC Galaxy is 5 million light years across and 163 light years away from the planet Earth. Book your ticket now to avoid last minute price hikes!
The Andromeda Galaxy is a separate galaxy, about 120,000 light years across, containing trillions of stars - possibly many with planets. Our Solar System is a single star with 8 planets and at best measures 2 light years.
The Andromeda Galaxy is at a distance of about 2.5 million light-years from Earth; or from the Milky Way.
The Milky Way is estimated to be about 2,000 light years thick, but about 100,000 light years long/far... Which i guess you can tell, thats a lot.
Yours is ~100,000 light-years, mine is 168,365.29 light years.
23 million light-years.
The Milky Way galaxy is around 100 thousand light-years across from end to end. (A light-year is the distance light travels in a year through the vacuum of space, equal to just under 10 trillion kilometres). It contains around 100 billion stars, many of which are thought to have solar systems of their own.

2.5 million light-years approximately ;)
its about 2.5 million light years away
Somewhere around 26,000 light-years.
The Andromeda galaxy,2.9 million light years away from us
There is not a ''farthest galaxy'' in the universe. But thereslotte is a very far galaxy.
22000 light years
The nearest galaxy to our Milky Way is the Andromeda galaxy, which is about 2.5 million light years away (that is not including the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, small, irregular "satellite" galaxies of our own).
An elliptical galaxy is a type of galaxy not a particular one.
Our star is located in the center of the Solar System. Many other stars are located all over the Universe. add. Our Milky Way Galaxy is about 100 000 light years across, and is a barred galaxy (a bar of stars across the centre) with (4?) spiral arms. Our arm is the Orion Arm, and the Sun is about 25 000 light years from the galaxy's centre. The Sun's path around the galaxy has a… Read More
We are in the Milky Way. It is our home galaxy. The Milky Way is 100,000 light years across - this is approximately 587,460 trillion miles.
Earth is approximately 25,000 light years from the Galactic Core.
About 13.5 billion light years away.
If light travels at 300000kmsec and the galaxy is 100000 light years wide how many kilometers is this?
Answer: 100,000 light years = 9.454e+17 km
The Galaxy UDFy-38135539 is 13.1 billion light years away. And the light we see from it is from when the Universe was only 600 million years old. It gives a great insight into how the universe looked in its early years.
The Milky Way galaxy, in which we live, is about 50,000 light years in radius, and we're about 40,000 light years out from the center. So the farthest away stars are probably about 90,000 light years away.
Billions and billions of years....
Our Galaxy (the Milky Way ) is roughly 100, 000 light years across form one end of the disk to the other. It contains well over 100 billion stars like our sun. It is 25, 000 light years thick.
It is agreed that the Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy, 100,000 light years in diameter, with observations suggesting that it contains 200-400 billion stars.
0 light-years, as Earth is part of the Milky Way Galaxy.
more than 100i know for a fact
ESO 510-G13 is a spiral galaxy approximately 150 million light-years away in the constellation Hydra See:- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Warped_galaxy.jpg
A light year is a measure of distance. The Milky Way is about 100,000 light years across.
How many years does it take for light to travel from the center of the milk way galaxy to your solar system?
About 26,000 years
What is the furthest star in the galaxy that has been viewed from earth and how many light years away is the star?
The galaxy MACS0647-JD is the furthest star in the gallery that has been viewed from the earth. It is 3.3 billion light-years from Earth.
Not sure, but the sun is 27,000 light years from the centre of the galaxy and the galaxy itself is 100,000 light years in width. The solar system is a pin prick compared to these sizes. i.e. 1 light year is about 10 trillion kilometres...
1.5 billion stars per 1000 light years.
Diameter of our Solar System: 2 light-years. That's if you include the Oort Cloud; many definitions of "Solar System" make it much smaller than that. Diameter of our galaxy: 100,000 light-years.
A galaxy is a massive, gravitationally bound system that consists of stars and stellar remnants, an interstellar medium of gas and dust. Typical galaxies range from dwarfs with as few as ten million stars up to giants with one trillion stars. Galaxies can also contain many multiple star systems, star clusters, and various interstellar clouds. Our Milky Way Galaxy is 100,000 light years across. Most galaxies range from 30,000 to over 300,000 light years across… Read More
Our solar system is estimated to be between 25,000 and 28,000 light years from the centre of our galaxy, the Milkyway.
8 billion light years means that the light has taken 8 billion years to reach you. That's how far into the past you are seeing.
100,000 ly across but only about 1000 ly thick.
Light-years is a distance, not a time measurement. If you are asking how many light-years a person would have to travel to be outside of the Milky Way galaxy, the answer depends on the "direction" one wishes to use when exiting. The Milky Way, relatively speaking, is almost flat, with a thickness of only 9.26 quadrillion kilometers which is roughly 1000 light-years. While this sounds like a large distance, compare that to the width which… Read More
There are 6000 background galaxies behind the Tadpole galaxy, at distances up to 13 billion light years.
There are 20 million sentient species (5 million in the known galaxy) in the Star Wars galaxy (an alternate version of the Triangulum galaxy; a spiral galaxy 3 million light-years from Earth, and is 100,000-120,000 light-years in diameter, and contains 400 billion stars (100 billion in known galaxy) and 180 billion star systems (~50 billion in known galaxy)).
Lightyears is not a measure of time, but of distance. Regardless, the Milky Way Galaxy is approximately 120,000 light years in diameter, and therefore, it would take 120,000 years to cross it IF YOU WERE TRAVELING AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT. At half the speed of light, it would take 240,000 years, at one-fourth the speed of light, it would take 480,000 years, etc.
How many galaxies like our own would it take if they were placed edge to edge to reach the nearest galaxy?
Less than one. * The Milky Way (our galaxy) has a diameter of about 100,000 light-years. * According to the Wikipedia, the Canis Major galaxy is at a distance of 25,000 light-years from our Solar System. However, its status as a galaxy is disputed (in other words, it may not be a galaxy). * On the other hand, the Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy is at a distance of about 70,000 light-years from the Solar System… Read More
