Artist's Description

The Andromeda Galaxy is our closest neighbor! You can also see M32 and M110, orbiting M31.

Called The Great Andromeda Nebula until his galactic nature was recognized in the 1920s, the spiral Andromeda Galaxy is the closest galaxy from the Milky Way, and the largest one in our Local Group. With an apparent diameter of about 140,000 light years, it is believed to contain about a thousand billion stars.

The Andromeda Galaxy is one of the few galaxies visible to the naked eye from Earth in the northern hemisphere. It is also one of the biggest objects in the sky, with an apparent diameter of more than six times that of the Moon.
