M31 Andromeda Galaxy
The 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.
