Picture of the Week- 12/21/12

12/21/12 For this week, and to commemorate the “End of the World,” I’d like to post a picture of the Andromeda Galaxy, our closest galactic neighbor! Well, I say close, but it’s still over 2 million light years away. It’s the biggest galaxy in the Local Group ( a group of over 20 galaxies that includes our Milky Way, Andromeda, and the Triangulum).

I post it here to give you hope, in case the world does end tonight, there are plenty of other planets to keep the universe pretty.
