GALAXY A galaxy is a massive collection of stars (billions of them), dust and gas. Our solar system belongs to the galaxy called ‘Milky way‘. When you go out in the night time, any star you see in the sky belongs to the Milky way Galaxy. On very clear nights, especially if you live in an area sans much light pollution, you can see the Milky Way with the naked eye.
