Humility:   Andromeda’s actual size, not accounting for the fact it is 2.5 BILLION LIGHT YEARS away, compared with the moon's 238,000 MILES away.  It contains a Trillion stars, while our galaxy contains at most a half a billion stars... And some on earth delude themselves that they are the center of Everything.

Black hole bonanza in 'next door' Andromeda galaxy Black holes contain the keys to a deeper understanding of the universe. According to the astronomers involved, these could be just the tip of the iceberg. Details of the find will be published in the 20 June issue of The Astrophysical Journal. Gas falling into a black holes emits X-rays and betrays the invisible 'death stars' to astronomers. |via The Guardian

The apparent magnitude of the Andromeda Galaxy, at 3, 4, is one of the brightest of any of the Messier objects, making it visible to the naked eye on moonless nights even when viewed from areas with moderate light pollution. Although it appears more then six times as wide as the larger telescope, only the brighter central region is visible to the naked eye or when viewed using binoculars or a small telescope.
