The relative locations of Earth and Eamon in the Milky Way Galaxy.

The Milky Way Galaxy is the galaxy that contains both the real planet Earth and the fictional planet Eamon. Donald Brown describes Eamon as occupying the exact center of the Milky Way, and notes that the existence of magic on Eamon is due to the powerful forces exerted by the rest of the galaxy orbiting around it.
