The Andromeda Galaxy is a neighbor galaxy to our own Milky Way Galaxy. It is located 2.5 million light-years away. It is the oldest light you can see with the unaided eye. 

I have always been fascinated with this galaxy because of its gorgeous spiral shape.  And as space technology continues to improve, astronomers are finding more ways to study this galaxy.  My favorite picture to date of the Andromeda Galaxy was released by NASA. This landmark photo is one of the largest photos ever assembled to date, and it shows the Andromeda Galaxy in incredible detail.
