Andromeda Galaxy


The ‘Andromeda Galaxy’ is the farthest celestial object that can be seen with the naked eye from Earth.
It is scientifically known as M31 and NGC224.
380 million years after the beginning of the universe,

That means the Andromeda Galaxy was created 1000 million years ago.
While there are ten billion stars in our galaxy, the Milky Way, the stars in the Andromeda Galaxy are about one lakh billion!
The distance from Earth to the Andromeda Galaxy is 22 million light years. That is the distance that light traveling at 300,000 kilometers per second takes 22,000,000 years to travel.

If the location can be accurately determined, it can be seen as a small cloud cloud in the Andromeda constellation with good eyesight. The best time to view it is midnight on Black Wednesday in August. The Andromeda Galaxy is 220,000 light-years in diameter, and our Milky Way galaxy is 100,000 light-years across.

We are now seeing the light that came out of the Andromeda Galaxy 22 million years ago!
That is the light about 20 lakh years before the evolution of man on earth !!
