Our planet and its Sun are thought to be on one of the spiral arms of the milky way planet, hence you can see back into the galactic centre as a faint band.

There are images of the planet, the Milky Way and its position in the so-called Local Group of galaxies (a relative term here) on various websites and also lots of interesting and fascinating images on Nasa and other space websites.
