Andromeda Galaxy: Amazing Photo Was Captured


An amateur astronomer captured this spectacular image during a holiday stargazing session last month. Jeff Johnson, from Las Cruces New Mexico, took advantage of some clear night skies to capture this amazing shot of the Andromeda Galaxy.

The Andromeda Galaxy is located 2.5 million light-years from our own Milky Way Galaxy. A light-year is the distance light travels in one year, which is about 6 trillion miles. Andromeda is our closest neighboring galaxy, and contains hundreds of billions of stars and is visible with the naked eye. The Andromeda and Milky Way galaxies are part of the "Local Group" of galaxies in our little corner of the universe.
