Picture of the Month - January 2007

Hi Friends! From this year on, I'll post some exciting pictures every month for you all.

This picture shows the full moon with Andromeda Galaxy(aka M13) in the background. This galaxy is only about 2.5 million LY (Light Years) away and it is known as the closest spiral galaxy to Milky Way. This entertaining image compares the zoomed in image of the galaxy and the normal sized image of the mooon with the same angular view. In the normal view this galaxy looks like a small, faint, fuzzy patch near the constellation of Andromeda.
