Galactic Neighbor


It seems like the nearby Andromeda galaxy (relative to other's still 2 million light years away) is "supercharged" in the photo below...but the shot was just taken with a high powered camera with infra-red lens from a satellite. Andromeda is twice the size of our own Milky Way galaxy, which is 100,000 light years across.
