An interesting model of our solar system’s path as it travels through space in the Milky Way.
Certainly a departure from usual models that show the Sun as a static object, which it certainly isn’t

This is perfect. I wish I knew where I could find the original video. It looks like it could be a NOVA animation, as it is very high quality.
Thinking of the solar system in this way is very satisfying for me. I can’t really explain it, but staring at this just makes me feel calm. We’re all just along for the ride.
