(bulge of many stars in the center of the Milky Way)

The galactic bulge is the bulge of stars surrounding the Milky Way's galactic center. It is cited as having ten million stars within a parsec of the center. In contrast, there is more than a parsec's distance between the Sun and its closest neighbor, Proxima Centauri.
