If This Doesn’t Blow Your Mind, Nothing Will

Other than a handful of deep sky objects (galaxies, nebulas, star clusters) that can be seen w/ the naked eye, this statement is basically correct. The stars we can see do generally fit inside that circle.

The Black Eye Galaxy (also called Sleeping Beauty Galaxy; designated M64) absorbed a satellite galaxy that collided with it, perhaps more than one billion years ago. Active formation of new stars is occurring in the shear region where the oppositely rotating gases collide, are compressed, and contract. It is approximately 17 million light years from Earth. The inner region has a radius of only approximately 3,000 light-years, while the outer section extends another 40,000 light-years.
