|Posted 21 Sep 2000. Spiral galaxy in Pegasus.
According to Burnham, this galaxy
is very similar to our Milky Way galaxy, so it appears as ours
would if seen from space. It's about 23 times further from us
than the Andromeda Galaxy (M31.) That puts it about 62 million
light years away (42-50 million light years, by other estimates.)
There are actually several galaxies in this image. The most prominent
is NGC7335, to the left and slightly above center of NGC7331.
