Our Galaxy, the milky way is 100,000 Lightyears in Diameter, there is another galaxy called IC 1011, which is 6,000,000(6 million) Lightyears in diameter.

To top it all off, Scientists say, there is an estimated 100 billion habitable planets in our Galaxy, the milky way. If that sounds like it is a lot there is an estimated 50 sextillion habitable worlds in our observable universe which consists of roughly 500 billion galaxies. These planets are earth like BTW.
This is what 50 sextillion looks like for those who don't know, 50,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 or (5*10^22)
