Smith's Cloud, as it is known, may set off spectacular fireworks when it smacks into our galaxy in 20-40 million years.

It contains enough hydrogen to make a million stars like the Sun, say experts, and its leading edge is already hitting gas from our galaxy.

When it does hit, the cloud could indeed set off a new burst of star formation in the Milky Way.

Details of the work, by a team at the US National Radio Astronomy Observatory and the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, were unveiled at the 211th meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Austin, Texas.

In 20 - 40 million years time ?? If I'm still about then, I really WILL have got good value from my pension !!

The eyesight probably won't be up to much, so I'll miss the best bits.

Some of the younger folk on this forum might be in with a chance though ?
