Does anyone know a good link to an animation or nice diagram showing how our solar system orbits the center of our milky way? I always imagined the milky way's plane, where most of the material is accumulated, as a record, granted, with a bigger bulge and 2/3 out from the center of that record, lies our solar system. Next, I imagined our solar system, which spins around the milky way's center, much like the record spinning. Then, I wondered if there was a wobble in the record and would this wobble give our solar system a secondary orbit as it wobbles up and down, passing through the milky way's plane. This lead to me thinking about how strong the gravity of the plane was at its center and where our solar system currently was on the wobble, in relation to the galactic plane. Next I thought about late 2012, when, astronomers confirm our solar system will pass through the center of this plane. Then, I considered how the sun and our moon effect tidal forces inside the Earth's core and its oceans. Then I thought about global climate change. Finally, I wondered if bovine and automobile flatulence was more powerful then the mass of our entire galaxy, even if it was... far... far... away.
