Our sun is a " rim star ".
Database is at the bottom of the webpage. Can you find all of the G2V Stars?
Earth is on the Orion Arm.
There is a massive black hole at the center of our galaxy.
As far as Extraterrestrial Life, it looks like Alpha Centauri B is the closest.
I guess i should throw in a Stellarium link so you can plot your course relative to Earth.
