Andromeda Galaxy is the closest and most visible of major galaxies. It
is believed to be similar to our own Milky Way Galaxy, and can be seen
by the naked eye on a dark night. Located
2.5 million light-years from Earth, it is headed toward us and
will collide in about 3.75 billion years. Companion galaxy M110 is at
the top and another galaxy, M32 is at the bottom. North is toward
the top and a little to the left.
