    Galactic Reference Frame (Physics/Astronomy)


    I am currently looking, for the name of a reference frame which uses the center of the Milky Way as its origin. I know of the Galactic Coordinate System, however this one uses our sun as the origin of the frame of reference. Could you help me?

    I look forward to your answer.

    I'm bumping this post for you, Anthony, so that someone who knows about these things, but you really need a science forum for this type of question.

    I am also moving the post to the General Language Discussion forum. which might help.
