 Milky Way | Koordinaten / Informationen / Encyclopedia of terms - Milky Way
Each spiral arm describes a logarithmic spiral (as do the arms of all spiral galaxies) with a pitch of approximately 12 degrees.
Outside of the major spiral arms is the Outer Ring or Monoceros Ring, a ring of stars around the Milky Way proposed by astronomers Brian Yanny and Heidi Jo Newberg, which consists of gas and stars torn from other galaxies billions of years ago.
The general direction of the sun's galactic motion is towards the star Vega near the constellation of Hercules, at an angle of roughly 86 degrees to the direction of the galactic center.

 Chapter 23: The Milky Way Galaxy
A suspected arm beyond the Sagittarius arm is the Centaurus (-2), or Norma-Centaurus arm.
Because interstellar gas and dust overtake the arm and enter it on the inner edge of the spiral pattern, this theory also explains concentrations of star formation along the inner edges of arms.
This theory also explains why spiral arms frequently appear to be made up of bright segments, instead of a continuous winding from the center outward to the edges of the galaxy.

We are situated on the edge of a spiral arm of the Milky Way, which is some 30,000 light years from the galactic centre.
There are four spiral arms - the Norma Arm from the centre, the Sagittarius Arm, the Orion Arm and the Perseus Arm.
Stars in the spiral arms are typically young and hot, surrounded by a lot of interstellar gas and dust.

There is also a piece of arm called the Outer Arm, but that seems to be a part of the Norma Arm.
These arms (except for the Local and Outer Arms) are named for the constellations that contain them (as seen from Earth).
It is very well possible that this is yet another part of the Norma Arm, at yet greater distance from the center than the Outer Arm, which also seems part of the Norma Arm.

 A Map of the Milky Way
The reason why the arms of spiral galaxies are so prominant is that the brightest stars are found in the spiral arms.
Spiral arms are the major regions of star formation in spiral galaxies and this is where most of the major nebulae are found.
The first method is to study the density of the neutral hydrogen (HI) in the plane of the Galaxy which is enhanced in the spiral arms.

 TYING IT ALL TOGETHER: Visible Large Scale Galactic Structure
Other arms are either offshoots of these major arms or discontinuous spiral segments (or in some cases alternative names for the same features or portions of larger features).
The Local Arm is a discontinuous arm segment (or perhaps segments) lying very roughly about 3,000 ly further out in the galaxy than the main Sagittarius Arm of which it may be an offshoot(s).
The Perseus Arm, which is three to four thousand light years broad, appears to be a spiral segment similar to the Local Arm.

Two other arms often mentioned are: the Norma arm- the name given to Perseus arm and the Cygnus arm when they join near the centre of the galaxy on the same side of the galaxy as our solar system, and the Orion arm on which the Sun is situated.
The Orion arm is not a full spiral arm it sits between the Sagittarius arm and the Perseus arm on the outer part of the galaxy.
The Spiral arms are concentrations of dust such as the above shown nebula, many young stars are produced in the nebulae in the spiral arms (Image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope).

 Milky Way Spiral Structure
The arms of the Milky Way, at least near the solar neighborhood in our Galaxy, are typically named for the constellations where (in the direction of which) more substantial parts of them are situated.
The next inner arm, sometimes labelled "-I", is called the Sagittarius or Sagittarius-Carina Arm, the next outer arm, labelled "+I", is the Perseus Arm.
These arms can be traced by deepsky objects, namely diffuse nebulae, open star clusters and associatons, (type II and Ib/Ic) supernova remnants, and main sequence stars of so-called "early" (hot) spectral types.

 Norma Jean | Salmon Arm   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
"Pretty Miss Norma Jean" may be best remembered as Porter Wagoner's stage partner before he was paired with Dolly Parton, but she was also well known for an often hard-edged group of songs that spoke of poverty, hard work, and the instability of romantic relationships.
Although she didn't have the songwriting creativity of Loretta Lynn or Dolly Parton, she was comparable to those stars in her general outlook.
Norma Jean Beasler was no stranger to poverty herself, born into a hard-working farm family near Wellston, OK. As a child, she wanted to be a country star like Kitty Wells, whom she tried to emulate.

But purely gaseous arms extend beyond the visible disk and are visible only at radio wavelengths.
It may be an extension of the Outer Arm, which probably connects to the Norma Arm in the inner part of the galaxy.
Because there are gaps in the radio survey's sky coverage, the possibility exists that the new arm connects to one of the four main spiral arms: the Outer Arm (which probably attaches to the Norma Arm in the inner galaxy).

According to spiral density wave theory we expect that gas approaching a spiral arm from the inner Galaxy side should show a decrease in circular velocity before the arm and then an increase as the gas passes through the arm.
The Sagittarius-Carina spiral arm is apparent as a loop of strong emission (very pink) crossing near longitude 280 degrees.
The dotted line shows the approximate positions and widths of the spiral arms which are labelled from left to right as Norma arm (N), Scutum-Crux arm (Sc) and the Sagittarius-Carina arm (Sa).
