The Andromeda galaxy, our Milky Way's closest neighbor, is the most distant object in the sky that you can see with your unaided eye — but only on a clear night from a location with a very dark sky Andromeda is frequently referred to as M31 since it is the 31 st object on Messier's list of diffuse sky objects. M31 is so distant it takes about two million years for light to reach us from there. Much about M31 remains unknown , including why the center contains two nuclei . Tomorrow's picture: New Planet Shadow Messier 31 (M31), better known as the Andromeda Galaxy, is a large spiral galaxy located in the constellation Andromeda.Lying at a distance of 2.54 million light years from Earth, the Andromeda Galaxy is the nearest major galaxy to our own The galaxy M31 (NGC 0224), also known as the Andromeda Galaxy, belongs to the Hubble class SA(s)b. Its disk is inclined by 74° - 78° with respect to the sky plane. This galaxy has a distance median value of 0.776 Mpc and hence is the nearest spiral galaxy on sky. The strongly polarized radio ring is a signature of a dynamo-generated.

M31 Blues Hubble Space Telescope recently snapped an ultra-sharp view of the nucleus (inset) of M31 , the Andromeda galaxy (background) M31, the famous Andromeda Galaxy, is the largest member of the Local Group that also includes the Milky Way, the Triangulum Galaxy (M33) and about 50 other smaller galaxies. With an apparent mag. of +3.4, it's one of the brightest Messier objects and easily visible to the naked eye even from areas with a certain amount of light pollution.M31 is usually regarded as the most distant object that.
Andromeda is frequently referred to as M31 since it is the 31st object on Messier 's list of diffuse sky objects. M31 is so distant it takes about two million years for light to reach us from there. Although visible without aid, the above image of M31 is a digital mosaic of 20 frames taken with a small telescope 5 September 2015 Astronomy Now In a Hubble Space Telescope survey of 2,753 young, blue star clusters in the neighbouring Andromeda Galaxy (M31), astronomers have found that M31 and our own galaxy have a similar percentage of newborn stars based on mass Messier 31 (M31, NGC 224) is the famous Andromeda galaxy, our nearest large neighbor galaxy, forming the Local Group of galaxies together with its companions (including M32 and M110, two bright dwarf elliptical galaxies), our Milky Way and its companions, M33, and others It is now time to capture the Andromeda Galaxy with a cooled astronomy camera! I went back to a Bortle 4 zone and used the QHY600C camera to image M31. I spent two half-nights on it for a total exposure time of 6.5 hours M31 is a large spiral galaxy, very similar in appearance to, and slightly larger than, our own Galaxy, and our closest normal-galaxy companion (the very close Magellanic clouds are classified as irregular galaxies)
This tutorial is a post-processing example involving an image of the M31 Andromeda Galaxy captured with a DSLR camera.As a result, the image is a One Shot Colour (OSC) image. The fully pre-processed image (done according to this tutorial) used as the post-processing example here was provided by a friend, Gordon Barrett.Full credit for the image therefore goes to him The most famous deep-sky object in Andromeda is the spiral galaxy cataloged as Messier 31 (M31) or NGC 224 but known colloquially as the Andromeda Galaxy for the constellation. M31 is one of the most distant objects visible to the naked eye, 2.2 million light-years from Earth (estimates range up to 2.5 million light-years) This M31 globular cluster is located at the NE edge of the core and 4' S of mag 9 SAO 36609.

The Andromeda galaxy, our Milky Way's closest neighbor, is the most distant object in the sky that you can see with your unaided eye, but only on a clear night from a location with a very dark sky. The galaxy is a beautiful spiral at only. It is also known as Messierr 31, M31, or NGC 224, and is often referred to as the Great Andromeda Nebula in older texts. Andromeda is the nearest spiral galaxy to the Milky Way, and will collide with our own galaxy in about 4.5 billion years Messier object M31 (NGC 224), also known as the Andromeda Galaxy, is a spiral galaxy located in the constellation Andromeda in the Local Group of galaxies. M31 is best viewed during winter, is magnitude 4.5*, and can be viewed with naked eye.It is 178' in size. For reference, the full moon is 30' (arc minutes) in size

Galaxias: MW M31 M33 is an interdisciplinary composition project bridging music and astronomy through a three-movement piece scored for clarinet, violin, cello, and piano. The inspiration for the piece was drawn from research done with simulations in supercomputers (van der Marel, 2012) on the collision of the Milky Way, Andromeda, and Triangulum spiral galaxies.

The Andromeda Galaxy, Messier 31 or M31, is the nearest spiral galaxy to our Milky Way galaxy.The Andromeda Galaxy is the largest galaxy of the Local Group, which also contains the Milky Way, the Triangulum Galaxy, and about 30 other smaller galaxies. The Andromeda galaxy is the most studied galaxy outside our own Andromeda is frequently referred to as M31 since it is the 31st object on Messier's list of diffuse sky objects. M31 is so distant it takes about two million years for light to reach us from there. Much about M31 remains unknown, including why the center contains two nuclei Andromeda, also known as Messier 31 (M31), is a spiral galaxy located about 2.5 million light years away. It is thought that the Milky Way and Andromeda will collide several billion years from now. The black holes located in both galaxies will then reside in the large, elliptical galaxy that results from this merger
Our galaxy, the Milky Way, and its nearest large neighbor, the Andromeda Galaxy (M31), are on a collision course. Billions of years from now, the merger will transform the structure of both. Improved SED plots. Under the Photometry & SED tab in By Name object search results, upward pointing arrows are added to the SED plots to indicate lower limit values from the photometry table. The example above is for NGC 1068. When hovering on the arrow, a tooltip box gives details of the measurement and clarifies it is a lower limit
The Andromeda Galaxy, our nearest major galactic neighbor, can be seen with the naked eye, even in areas with moderate light pollution. Persian astronomer Abd al-rahman al-Sufi's The Book of Fixed Stars from the year 964 contains the first known report of the object M31 is the Andromeda Galaxy. A spiral galaxy and the largest member of the local group of galaxies. M31 is currently about 2.2 million light years from the Milky Way, but is approaching and is expected to collide and merge in about 4 billion years

M31 has a bright nucleus that rapidly gives way to faint spiral arms, which extend outward for several degrees. It might help more to publish a surface brightness for the entire galaxy and another. M31 - The Andromeda Galaxy. The Andromeda Galaxy is arguably one of the most spectacular objects in the night sky. In typical city lights, it's completely invisible even though its apparent size is roughly 6 times as wide as the moon. Backyard astronomy and the Orion Nebula (Messier 42) I haven't done any official research, but my guess. The central region of Andromeda is shown in a composite image, with X-rays from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue) combined with the optical image. Astronomers believe that Andromeda, also known as Andromeda Galaxy (M31), and the Milky Way will merge in a few billion years
