Where do we live?

What are these?

Well, these are maps of your homes - and mine. These maps of the Visable Universe.

This is what we can see in an arc of 360 degrees, going riiiiiight out to the edge of what we can see, which is 13 Billion lightyears away! :)

So what is our address? Well, mine is:

Hampswthaite Road
North Yorkshire
United Kingdom
Planet Earth
The Milky Way Galaxy
The Virgo Supercluster

Please check out this fantastic site:

This is an interative map of the universe, starting with us, and moving outwards until the edge of the visable universe. Its well cool!

Now was it left, or right at Sagittarius?
