An Atlas of The Universe
This web page is designed to give everyone an idea of what our universe actually looks like. There are nine main maps on this web page, each one approximately ten times the scale of the previous one. The first map shows the nearest stars and then the other maps slowly expand out until we have reached the scale of the entire visible universe. Visits since 1 Aug 2000: 30 Jul 2006: I added another galaxy (Ursa Major II) to the map of the Satellite galaxies. 22 Jul 2006: I have replaced the Map of the Milkyway Galaxy with a new version. 16 May 2006: I added a copyright statement to the bottom of this page.
