NASA Shares Largest-Ever Image Of Andromeda Galaxy, Internet Calls It "Extraordinarily Beautiful



On Sunday, NASA, the space agency of the United States, released the "largest-ever" composite image of the Andromeda galaxy, which was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope seven years ago. This image represents the most precise and detailed view of our galactic neighbor captured to date.

The Andromeda galaxy is a stunning sight to behold, as shown in an image shared by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on Instagram. The picture captures a 48,000-light-year-long section of the galaxy and displays over 100 million visible stars. The image is divided into three parts, with the last section revealing a belt of blue stars and countless stars scattered around the photo.

The photograph has mesmerized internet users since its reposting, receiving almost one million likes. Commenters praised the stunning image, with one calling it "gorgeous" and another calling it "wonderful."

NASA explained that the Andromeda galaxy is 2.5 million light-years away, allowing for the identification of dozens of star clusters. The Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies are comparable in size and shape, according to the space agency.

The photo was previously shared in 2015 and was recently reposted. NASA explained that the image showcases a 48,000-light-year section of the galaxy in its natural visible-light color. Because the galaxy is relatively close to Earth, it appears larger in the sky compared to other galaxies photographed by the Hubble telescope that are billions of light-years away.
