Technically you are correct, BUT……we live in a different, much smaller galaxy that has been caught in the gravitational pull of the Milky Way galaxy. So yes, we live in the Milky Way, but our galaxy wasn’t originally a part of the Milky Way, it is its own galaxy residing within the Milky Way. Our galaxy has it’s own unique spin and motion different from the Milky Way, that’s how you can tell it is its own unique entity within the Milky Way. So in reality we live in two galaxies, but are native to only one of them, the smaller galaxy.
What is the name of that much smaller galaxy we live in that was caught in the gravitational pull of the Milky Way?
I took an astronomy course and had plenty of DVDs. Some DVDs had Dr Danny Faulkner or Dr Hugh Ross. I threw them away. Dr Faulkner finally admitted that the firmament in Genesis was overlooked, so there are other information overlooked or added or subtracted. According to Wikipedia: The Milky Way Galaxy is the second largest member of a cluster of over 30 galaxies called the Local Group. The largest member of the local group is the<strong style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”> Andromeda Galaxy, and the 3rd largest is the<strong style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”> Triangulum galaxy. Most of the other galaxies in the Local Group are much smaller dwarf spheroidal and dwarf elliptical galaxies. Our Local Group is a member of the Virgo Supercluster, which contains over 100 galaxies and cl…
It’s impressive that you are trying. Most people would just give up seeking.
You are researching macro scale, you need to scale down your search to what galaxies are within the Milky Way because we are in a galaxy within the Milky Way galaxy. Andromeda has swallowed up other galaxies too, but that is another discussion I’ll not address.
