Amazing image of the Andromeda Galaxy

The Andromeda Galaxy - It is 2 million light years away from us.so what we see now is how it appeared 2 million years ago. It will collide with our Milky Way in 2 billions years from now - the two galaxies are heading towards each other at a rate of 430

If This Doesn't Blow Your Mind, Nothing Will

An image released on October 2011 show the Antennae Galaxies (also known as NGC 4038 and are a pair of distorted colliding spiral galaxies about 70 million light-years away, in the constellation of Corvus (The Crow).

The Pleiades star cluster (M45) is a group of 800 stars formed about 100 million years ago. The cluster is located 410 light-years away from Earth in the constellation Taurus.
