Zoomable HST of Andromeda galaxy (M31)

Post by antares2063 »

Hubble took a panorama of M31 from July 2010 through October 2013...and here is the final result

It is CPU intensive , zoom in slowly and let the computer have time to load the hi-res!!

Some interesting features:

Globular clusters

Hot, young OB stars

Interesting cigar shaped object

I miss the place where stars shine bright, to gaze upwards in awe of the sight
