What is the orientation of the ecliptic plane of our solar system in relation to the plane of the galaxy?

One source I found said they were aligned to within 5.5 degrees.

Another source I found stated that the orbital planes were 63 degrees apart.

Does anyone know for sure?

Also, are all of the orbital parameters of our solar system around the galactic core known?
