Andromeda - Our Galactic Neighbour !
Andromeda a.k.a M31, NGC 224 is the nearest Major Galaxy to our Milkyway, located at a distance of 250 million Light-years ( that’s just ~2,365,182,600,000,000,000,000 km ).
It’s also the farthest object that can be seen with naked eyes from Earth.
Apart from the Galaxy’s Core, it’s Dust Lane, and Satellite Galaxies M32 & M110 are prominent in the image.
Oh, I forgot to tell you. Andromeda is on a collision course with our Milkyway, currently approaching at a speed of 110kmps, but don’t worry, we have got 4 billion years to figure out a way.
