Post subject:  The sun

Following Ross and Keiths talk on our star last night I was intriuged by something Keith mentioned about our sun being situated whithin orions arm ....... So much so that I had a look online this morning to try to find out more about this ..... I found this nice diagram which sort of puts it into perspective.....
