Now to give you an idea how even more interesting our night sky would look if Andromeda was brighter here it is to scale with the Moon .
Thats super neat.
I wish it was that close, would give us a pretty light show.
But having another gravitational body that close may make life on this planet impossible. Who knows .
Andromeda was a good show too
Ohmylanta! That second image is amazing! I just made it my wallpaper on my desktop.

Ah, a thought. You know how the full moon appears larger when it rises over the horizon, due to our brain reading out perspective. Imagine Andromeda rising over the horizon with the same optical illusion brain-readout perspective!
