image encompasses 40,000 light years

ABOVE VIDEO: NASA produced an image earlier this month of the Andromeda galaxy, which is the closest galaxy to earth.

The image was captured using the NASA/ESA Hubble Telescope, which took 411 images and assembled them to create the largest image ever taken – a whopping 1.5 billion pixels.

The image takes you through over 100 million stars and travels more than 40,000 light years. It’s likely to make you feel like you are only a very, very small part of a universe that we begin to understand the true size of as each day passes.
