Messier 31, the Great Andromeda Galaxy
M31, the Great Andromeda Galaxy is the nearest large galaxy to our home galaxy, the Milky Way. It is "only" about 2.2 million lights years away. Some dark dust lanes are visible in this image. The small fuzzy spot to M31's upper right is M110, a smaller companion galaxy to M31.
