Close Encounters - Andromeda
Photograph - Photograph
The Andromeda galaxy is our nearest galactic neighbor (2.4 million light years away) and one of the few that is moving towards our own galaxy. One day we are slated for a close encounter, but it will not be for a long, long time. Composite of evening landscape and 6.5 hours of exposure for Andromeda through a computer guided telescope.
