Galactic coordinate system

Artist's depiction of the Milky Way galaxy, showing the galactic longitude relative to the sun. The galactic coordinate system (GCS) is a celestial coordinate system which is centered on the Sun and is aligned with the apparent center of the Milky Way galaxy. The "equator" is aligned to the galactic plane. Similar to geographic coordinates, positions in the galactic coordinate system have latitudes and longitudes.
