Fascinating overlay. 2.5 million light years away.
#Andromeda  

Thx +Thomas Baekdal 
 
Here is something absolutely spectacular. When we look up at the night sky, we can see our own Milky Way Galaxy as this white fog like line all across it. It's a stunning sight. And we can also see distant stars, but we have no concept of other galaxies because their edges are not distinguishable by the human eye. They are not bright enough to be seen as a whole.

But what if we could see them? How big is our neighboring galaxy, Andromeda, really in our night sky? Below, is an image overlay of the night sky, with our moon, and the actual size of Andromeda. 

Isn't this amazing?

It's huge! And keep in mind that it's currently 2.5 million light years away. Here is another picture from NASA: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130801.html

But, of course, it's going to get even bigger. Andromeda is on a direct collision course with our Milky Way Galaxy, currently approaching at a speed of about 396,000 km/h, and it will slam into us in about 4 billion years (although there is no real risk of actual planets hitting each other). And after a short dance of another 1-2 billion years, we will merge into a new larger galaxy. Here is a simulation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4disyKG7XtU

Of course, this makes little difference to us here on Earth. You see, Earth won't be a habitable planet by then. Our own sun is dying, and will slowly turn Earth into a wasteland over the next 3 billion years. So by the time Andromeda hits us, we will no longer be here. 

Hopefully, we will have become a fully native spacefaring race by that time, with colonies on thousands of planets, as well as entire civilizations living in huge spaceships wandering the universe. http://goo.gl/iTBrr5

Pluto & its moon Charon: Barycentric Dance.
Join the Simple Science and Interesting Things Community and share interesting stuff! https://plus.google.com/communities/117518490246975838002

The barycenter (or barycentre; from the Greek βαρύ-ς heavy + κέντρ-ον centre + -ic) is the point between two objects where they balance each other. For example, it is the center of mass where two or more celestial bodies orbit each other. When a moon orbits a planet, or a planet orbits a star, both bodies are actually orbiting around a point that is not at the center of the primary (the larger body). For example, the Moon does not orbit the exact center of the Earth, but a point on a line between the center of the Earth and the Moon, approximately 1,710 km below the surface of the Earth (4,661 km from Earth's center, ~74% of Earth's radius), where their respective masses balance. This is the point about which the Earth and Moon orbit as they travel around the Sun

∴ Putting your big idea into motion™
Introduction
How are you today? Feeling good?  Feeling down?
Excellent! You came to the right place.  Living in this very moment.

TUTUM TE ROBORE REDDAM

Cycles are natural. If your situation is not what you had hoped, it's bound to improve. If it's currently great, than you will want faithful friends around when it becomes less than you hoped. Maybe you will decide that the situation doesn't matter, that you can be happy no matter what. That is the better way in my opinion. This idea may be hard to swallow at times, but it has been my experience, for whatever that is worth to you.  

My mission in life: Help others create and adapt to change for the better カイゼン
I am passionate about helping everyone leverage the dynamic nature of their world to grow in every aspect. My reward is to see them make an impact that energizes them and the lives of others.

Lifecycles ... change in action.
