I tried the Starry Night demo once, and I ended up liking Celestia better. I normally don't shill things (I don't want to sound like another Firefox fan) but Celestia (celestia.sourceforge.net) is free, and great once you figure out ITS interface and shortcut buttons.

we only see what is around us, therefore the known galaxy creates a sphere (or box) of what we have discovered

It goes on forever. So technically, right now, since it goes on forever, there is another galaxy called the milky way in which there is a planet earth on which there is a young man typing these very words. Mind = blown.

yeah how can we know this much about the galaxies around us if we can barely see past our own stars because of their brightness?
July 16th, 2007

This is not even taking into account that most of which we can see has died millions or billions of years ago. What is truly out there could be bigger then we could ever comprehend.

Clearly a false statement. The universe cannot be in a box, because the universe contains everything by definition; therefore, there can be no box outside it to bound it. ;)
