Results were expressed in a meeting of the American Astronomical Society, 219 in Texas, the United States. Newman said that the best description he can give is to describe the color of snow in early spring. Milky Way is like having a grain of powder snow, where the vulnerable time is approximately one hour after sunrise or one hour before sunset.

Besides having a color such as snow, the Milky Way can also be compared between the colored old-fashioned incandescent light and sunlight at midday. Both are white, but different from each other.

Research results of the galaxy color is an important development for the science of astronomy. The color of the galaxy is a measure of departure age of the stars in the galaxy. Based on the colors that have been obtained, Newman said that the Milky Way is currently in a very exciting stage of evolution. Star formation rate by the Milky Way is increasingly reduced. Possible future what will happen is a mystery of the universe that is very interesting to study.
