I love how this viewpoint adds a twist on our current understanding of astronomy. It's quite exciting and the graphics are pretty impressive, however the original video displays the Sun moving solar north heading toward Vega at 38° N. The animation, if based off real mechanics will probably be far more chaotic; if shown with the plane of motion 60° perpendicular to the galactic plane. (as it should be) We should actually see planets shooting head of our parent star and then falling behind, like some kind of erratic Frisbee. If we could view things from a fixed extra-galactic spatial point in space, we would quickly notice that the path of the planets will appear extremely complex.
This puts me in mind of the Equivalence Principle, where it states, each body in a gravitational field is traveling on a geodesic, moving 'as though' it is freely falling. So, what looks to an external observer like a complex orbit is actually the shortest and simplest path the body can take. Perhaps things are far simpler than we could ever imagine .
