Direction of stars' orbits around galactic center

  1. Mar 20, 2016 #1
    Do all stars in the Milky Way orbit the galactic center in approximately the same direction?
    Also, toward which Zodiac constellation is the Sun moving in its orbit?

    it's moving roughly in the direction of the star Vega in the constellation of Lyra

    NOTE: this is all very easy google info :wink:
