Where in the milky way galaxy is castor star found?
Present estimates of the dimensions of the Milky Way galaxy place its diameter at roughly 100,000 light years.
The star "Castor" in the constellation of Gemini is about 50 light years distant from our solar system,
or roughly 0.05 percent of the distance across the galaxy.

One. The Milky Way is our galaxy. Every star you see in the sky at night with your naked eye is in the Milky Way. The closest galaxy to ours is the Andromeda Galaxy, which you can see if you look in the right place, but it will just look like a fuzzy blob and not like a star. The milky way is the name of our galaxy, there are no other galaxies in it.
A Star Cluster is a cluster of stars found within a galaxy or the intergalactic medium, and they don't usually have supermassive black hole centers or spiral arms. Star clusters contain around a thousand stars, compared to the Milky Way's 300 billion stars. In short, a galaxy is not classified as a star cluster.
Earth's Sun is a star in the Milky Way galaxy, believed to be a spiral or barred spiral type of galaxy. The name "Milky Way" comes from the dense nighttime band of stars when looking up into the plane of the galactic disk. Earth is located in the Milky Way Galaxy. The Earth is located on the Orion arm of the galaxy. The Milky Way Galaxy is made out of roughly 200 billion stars.
