Andromeda is the nearest major galaxy to our own Milky Way Galaxy. Our Galaxy is thought to look much like Andromeda. Together these two galaxies dominate the Local Group of galaxies. The diffuse light from Andromeda is caused by the hundreds of billions of stars that compose it. The several distinct stars that surround Andromeda's image are actually stars in our Galaxy that are well in front of the background object. Andromeda is frequently referred to as M31 since it is the 31st object on Messier's list of diffuse sky objects. M31 is so distant it takes about two million years for light to reach us from there. Much about M31 remains unknown, including why the center contains two nuclei.

In fact, we know it's an illusion, because the lights travelled for centuries and even more for the farer deep space objects, and so, these object are in fact not where we seem to observe them, and sometimes, in fact, these object have disapeared for centuries when them light come to us.
I believe we already had a thread where we came to the conclusion that Time is mearly a way to measure movement Moving in space is thus movement in time as well. How fast you move in space equates to how far you move forward in time.
