Messier Gallery

A mosaic of six images of M31 (NGC 224), the Andromeda Galaxy.

This mosaic shows only a small part of M31, the closest large galaxy (~2 million l.y.), and largest member of the Local Group to which the Milky Way belongs. M31 is tilted to our line of sight at about 15 degrees. Images showing M31's full extent can be found here.
