✨Los anillos de M31 en luz ultravioleta

Domingo 6 de Marzo de 2016 La Galaxia de Andrómeda, catalogada como Messier 31, está tan sólo a 2,5 millones de años luz de distancia de la Tierra. Abarca unos 260.000 años luz, por lo que para producir esta magnífica fotografía en luz ultravioleta desde el telescopio del satélite Galaxy Evolution Explorer GALEX han sido necesarios 11 campos de visión distintos.

Almost all of them are relatively close to the Sun, with the vast majority being less than 1,000 light years away. But the Milky Way is 100,000 light years across!
