Jacqueline LutzDamon OlsenAST 102- Lab 822ndNovember 2017Milky Way GalaxyExercise 1:1.There is a pattern to the distribution of the clusters on the plot. They increase byright ascension.2.RA= 18 hours plus or minus 10%Dec= -31 degrees plus or minus 10%3.Thickness of galactic disk= about 14 kpc plus or minus 20%4.Distance to galactic center= about 3.5 kpc plus or minus 10%5.Diameter of disk of galaxy= about 30 kpc plus or minus 10%6.Diameter of halo of galaxy= about 35 kpc plus or minus 20%7.Thickness of galactic disk and diameter of halo of galaxy have the largestuncertainties because they are the hardest to pinpoint.8.Distance to disk of galaxy= about 4 kpc plus or minus 30%9.RA= 18 hours plus or minus 10%Dec= 30.5 degrees plus or minus 10%10. It had to have been omitted from diagram 1 because even though it was omitted itstill had a few similar cluster points plotted.11. The bulge is equally big in both diagrams. Both have a diameter of about 31.
