From Greek γαλαξίας, meaning "milky"; named for the Milky Way, which seen in the night sky from the Earth's viewpoint forms a "milky way" or "road of milk", as the spiral arm of the galaxy forms a streak we can faintly see.

galaxy (plural: galaxies)

  1. a collection of billions of stars, galactic dust, black holes, etc. of which there are billions in the known universe. They usually form spiral or elliptical shapes likely due to a central gravity well (i.e. supermassive black hole), but some form irregular shapes (especially if they are broken away from another galaxy).
  2. our Milky Way galaxy
