Sometimes at night, I can see the milky way in the sky. I do not know exactly what shape it is, but of the ones you've mentioned, when viewed from here on earth, to me it looks like a flat spiral. Karen

you are right. the milky war has four spiral arms radiating from a central cluster of stars or "nucleus". our solar systeem is situated on one of the spiral arms, quite from the center
