Andromeda Nebula (M31)

Member, Dave Wilkins, assembled this fantastic image of the Andromeda Nebula (M31, NGC 224) from 55 images of 1-minute duration. Images were taken near Kinzua Point, close to Warren, PA in July, 2020. The nebula is a barred spiral galaxy approximately 2.5 million light-years from Earth and the nearest major galaxy to the Milky Way. The galaxy’s name stems from the area of Earth’s sky in which it appears, the constellation of Andromeda
