How Far Away Is It – 11 – Andromeda and the Local Group (1080p) see update

Text at

In this segment of our “How far away is it” video book, we cover the Andromeda galaxy along with our local group of galaxies, including some of the dwarf galaxies orbiting the Milky Way.

We begin with Edwin Hubble’s discovery of a Cepheid variable star in what was thought to be a Milky Way nebula. The star was V1 and it changed the history of astronomy. We cover the black hole at the center of Andromeda, highlight the size of this beautiful galaxy with its trillion stars, and point out what was going on here on our planet when the light we see left Andromeda on its journey into our telescopes.

Next we identify the local group of galaxies including: Triangulum with its great star birth H II region NGC 604; irregular galaxy NGC 6822 with its unique Hubble V H II region; the recently discovered galaxy IC 10; nearly edge on galaxy NGC 3109; and Sextans A.

Then we focus on the two main galaxies orbiting the Milky Way — the Large Magellanic Cloud and the Small Magellanic Cloud. Then we take a look at some of the amazing nebula within these two dwarf galaxies including: Supernova Remnant N 63A, SN 0509-67.5, the Tarantula Nebula, 30 Doradus, Hodge 301, the Double Bubble, LH 95, NGC 2074, NGC 602, and NGC 346.

We conclude with a review of the galaxies we covered marked on a map of the Local Group.

  • 1,000,000,000,000 stars equals how many possible planets?

  • A light year (the distance light travels in a year at 186,000 miles a SECOND) is six Trillion miles. In contrast – the Fastest-Ever man-made Spacecraft is the Parker Solar Probe measured at 153,454 miles per HOUR!!!

    The nearest star to Earth is about 4 light years away. Earth to the center of our Milky Way Galaxy is 30,000 light years! The Milky Way is about 100,000 light years across.

    The next nearest galaxy Andromeda is 2.65 million light years away and has an estimated 1 trillion stars.

    And bec. of the Hubble telescope science now says there are Trillions of galaxies out there?

    The human mind cannot comprehend the vastness of the known universe if all this is true!!!

    And not to complicate the situation, where is Heaven is this equation???!!!

  • It is so far away that if the milky way were the size of a seed and andromeda were the size of a seed, then the milky way would be in the middle of the USA and Andromeda would be in the middle of Euro Asia.

  • Which of the lights of the constellations or stars are the galaxies? Has anyone ever actually observed one? Or could this all be CGI driven fantasy and pseudoscientific delusion?

  • Fake! If things were that far away, truly; the light would necessarily be useable . . do the math

  • 2:57 when the light that the telescope left andromeda there were no humans on earth…….

    bullshit!!! if the telescope didn’t exist then it would’ve had been impossible for the light to start traveling to earth

  • The Universe is teeming with life. It's undeniable.
    We are one of so many. Yet we "feel" alone. As do they do, I suppose.

  • So likely case and sanario is there is intelligent life even on our nearest cosmic neighbor that can't figure out how to reach us since we seem stuck as well

  • Very well done. Once again it is more information than many simple minded "followers" can comprehend. Looking forward to the next!
