I know that the Sun and hence the Solar System orbits around the galactic center of the Milky Way. Does this rotation cause any visible change in the night sky?
I know that human life span is negligble compared to the time it takes the Sun to go around the galaxy, but will we ever see any change in the night sky if we record the the observations over few generations? Will we ever see a new start or constellations? Or a different view as we go around the Milky Way?
I am assuming (and hoping), given enough time to make considerable progress of the Sun around the Milky Way, there has to be some change, we may get to see another galaxy or something :)
Now, don't tell me that the Milky Way itself is going around something even bigger :)
(I am glad I found this site, there was a question that I always wanted to ask but did not know where.)
