Figure 6. The Solar System orbits the center of the Milky Way galaxy and passes through spiral arms roughly every 150 million years. Currently the Solar System is at the edge of the Sagittarius Arm of the galaxy. The Solar System also moves up and down relative to the Galactic Plane and its position up or down is not known very accurately. Source: Physics Forums.
