Description: General discussion about Celestia that doesn't fit into other forums.

Wikipedia puts its diameter at 5-6 million lightyears.
In Celestia, its radius is 1.832e+05 ly, which would only be a diameter of 366,400 ly.
It seems that there's a little discrepancy here.
So which is wrong?

It seems that the Google results say a diameter of 5-6 million lightyears frequently.
A blog, answers.com, and Wikipedia say that its diameter is ~5 million ly, yet at the same time say its 1 billion ly away, which is the distance Celestia has it at.
